Drummer Magazine, (1975 to 1999), was the premiere magazine for men in the kink /fetish world who did not see themselves, or their sex lives reflected in erotic gay publishing at that time.

Antebellum Gallery hosts a traveling exhibition from the Leather Archives & Museum.  
The Art of Drummer: New Outlines in Masculinity will be shown from March 19, 2013 through april 12th, 2013. 
 Original works from over twenty artists published in Drummer Magazine will be included.
Dr. Jack Fritscher, founding San Francisco editor in chief of Drummer states:
What a hot concept for Fans of Fetish!

 An exhibit of the artists we featured in Drummer, the magazine that helped create the very leather culture it reported on!

 No other magazine published and validated so many historic erotic artists— including our art director, the cartoonist A. Jay, Rex, Domino, The Hun, Bill Ward, Chuck Arnett, Etienne, Tom of Finland, Rick Castro, Robert Mapplethorpe

and a hundred other fetish artists with a career goal to canonize their reputations in the legendary Drummer that from 1975-1999 was read literally by millions.

 
  When the Leather Archives & Museum asked me to help draft thumbnail biographies of these talented sex-artists, I gladly assisted in the LA&M’s development of this traveling exhibit already seen by thousands. After all, one of the LA&M founders with Chuck Renslow was Drummer publisher, Anthony DeBlase. 

 I welcome these LA&M endorsed artists from the Drummer Salon to Hollywood, and to the walls of Rick Castro’s remarkable fetish gallery~ Antebellum.
