What can you expect from the show? Many people assume that a show that has nudes is about erotica. There is a difference between figurative and erotic art. Most of the pieces in this show will feature nudes that are presented in a setting that is natural, safe and comfortable and are not being represented in a sexually accessible manner. They are unclothed bodies that are intended to represent natural beauty, not to create impulses. You will find that many of the figures wear clothes or costume. We do not discriminate against the clothed model. As long as the model is human, it will be accepted into the show. 

Is there a place for a nude in your home? The average American might balk at the idea, but decorators and art connoisseurs don’t hesitate to hang beautiful & tasteful nudes, in a discreet location like a bedroom, bathroom or dressing area. A perfect place to enjoy an unclothed body. Many collectors display their art in their main living area and throughout their home, for everyone to enjoy. Would you dare to be so bold?
