Six years ago, Bella Sin, founder of the locally based burlesque troupe Le Femme Mystique, began hosting the Ohio Burlesque Festival, a three-day event featuring regional, national and international talent.

Next month, Space: ROCK Gallery, the gallery located next to the Beachland, the site of this year's event, will host All That Glitters: Burlesque at the Beachland, an exhibit featuring photos of the event taken by Eric Paul Owens, Anastasia Pantsios, Bob Perkoski and Scene staff photographer ad Emanuel Wallace.

There will be two opening receptions — at 5:30 p.m. on Thursday, Aug. 3, the first day of the festival, and at 5 p.m. on Friday, Aug. 4, during Walk All Over Waterloo.

Expect to see photos of performers of all races, ethnicities, gender identities and body types, and acts that range from “elegant to comedic to acrobatic to bizarre to thought-provoking.”
