Re-Presenting the Nude is an exhibition curated by John O’Hern with his selection of some of the finest and unique depictions of the nude in mediums of painting, sculpture and drawing by 28 internationally known artists working today – many of which never before shown in Santa Fe! Will Wilson’s irresistible waif in the “String Theory” has been referred by many as a modern day “Mona Lisa”. Spanish master, Bernardo Torrens presents two of his most stunning masterpieces in acrylic on wood. New artist with EVOKE Contemporary is Lee Price presenting her unique aerial perspectives of those private moments in the bathroom or boudoir behind locked doors with deserts galore…all in the raw and mostly in the bathtub. Christyl Boger will entice you with her delightful siren in Swan Float which is a lyrical treat to anyone’s fantasies.
In addition to a tastefully uncensored exhibition, the opening night on Thursday July 1st will treat guests to hors d’oeuvres in the raw, aphrodisiac beverages and hot live entertainment. Re-Presenting the Nude will run through July 31st. Dress code – optional.
