The nudes are back! This month's exhibit, The Body Revealed, runs June 6-30, 2017.

Open House and Artist Reception 
Saturday, June 17th from 2 - 4pm 
Refreshments and live music - don't be shy, join us!

The artists featured in this show have painted together for more than 15 years, meeting weekly with professional models, some from the Bay Area Models' Guild.

You'll be amazed at the different techniques these talented artists use to express themselves and create their masterpieces. You'll see uncensored, professional work from Jackie Carroll, Pam McCauley, Sarah Morrison, Lynn Glenn, Beryl Glen-Reiland and many others.

As owner of aRt Cottage, I often ask myself - why are other galleries so afraid of revealing the beauty of the human form? What is it about our society that causes some galleries to exclude nudes from their shows? Is it because we're afraid that it might damage the minds of our children? Just walk around on a summer's day and see how much skin is really revealed here in California! There are many TV shows and video games that are worse for our society than looking at beautiful art as "landscapes of the body."

We hope you'll come and see how beautiful the human form is and how well these artists have executed the subject - whether it be with oils, acrylics, watercolor, collage, or graphite and charcoal.

Join us for the Artist Reception on Saturday, May 13th, 2-4pm - during Concord's 5th Annual Art, Wine & Beer Walk!
