Gallery calls for ‘What's Nude’

Jan 03, 2017
Belfast’s David Estey, whose charcoal drawing “Standing Nude Back” is pictured, is among the Midcoast artists who have shown at Boothbay Harbor’s downtown Studio 53.

Boothbay Harbor — "What's Nude in Boothbay Harbor? A Celebration of the Human Form" will open Feb. 10 at Studio 53, Townsend Ave. Artists are invited to submit two pieces of work to the show by the deadline, Jan. 25.

An opening reception for the Valentine’s Day weekend show will be held Friday, Feb. 10, from 5 to 8 p.m. “What’s Nude” will run through Sunday, Feb. 12.

"What's Nude in Boothbay Harbor?" will offer something unique and fun to break up the long winter months and help celebrate Valentine's Day. Exhibiting nudity can be challenging in traditional and conservative New England, but this third exhibition of "What's Nude" endeavors once again to present through a variety of interpretations of the beauty and shape of the human form through paintings, paper work, sculpture and photography.

A submission form may be obtained by emailing or calling the Boothbay Harbor Region Chamber of Commerce at 633-2353. The chamber is cosponsoring the show with Studio 53.
