It Figures: The Body in Art

Join ARC for a juried group show and drawing exhibit

  • Opening Reception, Friday June 24 from 6-9pm  

This month ARC Gallery is featuring a group exhibit selected by Dan Addington of Chicago’s Addington Gallery with a theme based on a contemporary look at the human figure. In addition, last year’s drawing show first-place winner, Jack Nixon, will display the wide variety of his intricate drawings.

  • Exhibition dates: June 22 – July 16, 2016 
  • Gallery hours: Wed to Sat 12-6 pm, and Sun. 12-4 pm  

The exhibition It Figures: The Body in Art is a contemporary examination of the human figure- historically a major focus of artists.  All societies have created their own concepts for how to portray the human body.  These concepts are reflected and challenged in artists’  representation of the human figure. This exhibit will examine contemporary society’s and artists’ views of the human body in all of its manifestations.

At 7:30 on the evening of the opening reception, Friday, June 24, please join us for a performance work presented by David Perales Albert.
