Last year I wanted to do something bold and different, so I created and produced this nude art exhibit as a way of breaking out of the box and unleashing my wild side, hoping to not only raise a few eyebrows and arouse curiosity, but to open up a different side of the art world seldom seen behind closed doors. Even though nude art is widely viewed at museums and galleries in metropolitan cities like San Francisco and Oakland, I am told by the local artists that it is rarely allowed in small town galleries and certain areas. In fact, when I first brought up the idea and the artists heard about this exhibit, they were all too excited to be able to show their artwork! And this show, despite the warnings I was given, was well received and especially well attended at the VIP Artist Reception. Towards the end of last year, I was made aware that the artists were already asking when the next Eros Show would be held -- so of course I couldn't disappoint them! And I hope to make this exhibit an annual event, which already is evolving wonderfully! So even if you're just a little bit curious, and you do enjoy fine art, feel free to come down and see the amazing creativity and beautiful figures of our local artists!
