For one night only Muse Gallery will present an exhibition of iconic images from the Motel Fetish period. Copies of all three books will be available, including the rare first edition Japanese version of Motel Fetish. In addition to the exhibit there will be a print sale of Chas Ray’s works as well as items and accoutrements from the Motel Fetish Collection: MF logo Zippo lighters and ashtrays, embroidered Motel Fetish hand and bath towel sets, hi-ball cocktail glasses and the ever popular embroidered Motel Fetish sheer panty.

To add to the evening’s entertainment, Chas Ray will install Motel Vivant, a live reenactment of a photograph involving a classic motel set with live models styled in appropriate Motel Fetish attire. To accompany the visuals Bob Ray Starker will play his dreamy saxophone to add to the ambience. (Motel Vivant is a take off on Tableau Vivant which is typically a figure painting staged using live performers.)
