Love for Sale explores love, sweet love, obsessive, dark love, all kinds of love.  It goes from the joy of new love to the misery of unrequited love and spans all points in between. We invite you to come and investigate the mystery of gift giving while viewing objects of art representing expressions of love for sale. In the words of Roland Barthes:

“The Heart – coeur/heart – This word refers to all kinds of movements and desires, but what is constant is that the heart is constituted into a gift-object–whether ignored or rejected. “ – A Lover’s Discourse
