Invitational Exhibit: 7 Deadly Sins

My painting,
Female Nudes, is on exhibit at Studio 659, also in Whiting, Indiana from April 8 to 30.  The exhibit, 7 Deadly Sins, challenges artists to interpret one or more of these sins: Sloth. Pride. Envy. Lust. Gluttony. Wrath. Greed. “Long held as the seven deadly sins, we see evidence of their presence daily in Western Society. Some of these sins are even ‘celebrated’ as virtues in modern society.”  My painting of two female nudes could be viewed as portraying lust in the form of lesbian desire, or as celebrating the beauty and dignity of the human nude figure, depending on the mind-set of the observer.  

The opening reception is on Friday, April 8, 7 to 9 PM, at Studio 659, 1413 119th Street, Whiting, Indiana.  Both exhibits are located 20 minutes outside of Chicago in NW Indiana in the Historic Downtown District of Whiting on the shores of Lake Michigan.
