Depictions of the human form, dating back to early cave dwelling societies, were some of the first blossoming of artistic expression, and part of the record of civilization. Representation of the human form in art has long been acknowledged as a significant source of inspiration, and for many artists the core of all artistic endeavors. It is with this in mind that once a year the Art Center Gallery of Clatsop Community College presents Au Naturel, a juried collection of paintings, drawings and prints selected from artists around the globe, honoring the importance of the nude as an art form. In support of the annual juried exhibition, a number of downtown art venues will present artwork celebrating this genre, thus expanding the concept beyond the boundaries of the campus. A diverse collection will be exhibited throughout downtown art galleries and supporting businesses, creating a unique and cohesive art walk entirely focused on the theme of humankind in its most elemental form.

The Nudes Downtown, 2014 art exhibit will run from February through the end of March. All galleries and businesses participating in this fourth year of Nudes Downtown, will be participating in the Second Saturday Art Walk, as well as other events scheduled throughout the two months at each of the seven galleries and venues.

Artists whose works have been selected by galleries to be exhibited this year include:

RiverSea Gallery: Lea McCombs, Anna Kodesch, Sagan Newham

Imogen Gallery: Jo Ellen Rademacher, Kerri Warner

Lightbox Photographic Gallery: Catherine Al-Meten

Old Town Framing Company: Richard Bulman, Vicki Baker, Sandi Ludescher,
Jack Black, and Tim Ayupov

Tempo Gallery/Artists Collective: Yvonne Edwards, Elizabeth Bonn Zimmerman, Marga Stanley, Vicki Baker, Normandie Hand and Bettelu Krause
