The Essential Nude…

… is an art show devoted to Figurative Fine Art in Livermore, CA. This Livermore Art Association Juried Art Exhibition runs from today, April 15, through this Sunday, April 18, at the The Bothwell Arts Center (2466 Eighth Street, Livermore California 94550-4604; (925) 447-2787).

I spoke to the show’s Chair, Barbara Stanton, yesterday, and she told me that about 20 artists would be exhibiting approximately 87 works in the show!

Artists were invited to submit original art pieces in several categories: Nude, Semi-Nude, Clothed, and Portraiture. Receiving for the show occurred last Sunday, April 11. The judge for the show is artist/illustrator Robert Hunt (

A reception will be held today, April 15th, from 7:00 to 9:00 PM, and the Awards Presentation will be at 7:30 PM! Hours for the show are daily from 11:00 AM until 4:00 PM on Friday – Sunday, April 16 – 18. The “People’s Choice Award” will be announced on Sunday, April 18, at 3:30 PM.

I look forward to seeing some of you at this celebration of the human form!

(Note added at 8:45 PM PDT on April 15, 2010: I attended the reception and awards ceremony for the show tonight. There were, in the judge’s opinion, more award-winning pieces than there were awards! I agree! If you can, attend The Essential Nude. It is the kind of show that makes me wish that I had an unlimited supply of money for purchasing art! :-) Then again, I felt the same way at the Spring Art Show!)
