(504 East 18th Street, 816-716-5940) opens an exhibit of mysterious photographic erotica by Keren Moscovitch, an adjunct professor at New York's School of Visual Arts. "I did a residency there three years ago," says Slap-n-Tickle owner Apryl McAnerney. "We kept in contact over the years, and Keren's recent body of work is this explosion of this amazing erotica. They're very sexual and very honest. It's cool work. At a certain age, you stop worrying about what people think of your work — the result is brutal honesty and newfound kindness about yourself, being comfortable with yourself." Tonight's 6 p.m. reception includes music by Kansas City's awesome Amy Farrand, live body painting and burlesque by Lucky DeLuxe.
