Opportunity for nude artists (ha! ha!)

Deadline: 12/17/17 

The Lexington Art League seeks submissions for its annual figure exhibition. For over 30 years the figure show continues to push the boundaries beyond the traditional ‘nude’ toward a deeper exploration of the human figure and experience. 

Brutal Beauty is a contemporary exhibition of the human figure that speaks to our innermost instincts for satisfaction, pleasure, and comfort through work that invites us to examine the qualities that we are unable to avoid, but often hide from others. This exhibition seeks to convey a rawness that is universal while revealing our desires and limitations in a boldly honest approach to the way we experience the human form.


International call. Open to all artists regardless of location, media, or experience level. 


Artists are required to deliver artwork to the Lexington Art League, 209 Castlewood Drive, Lexington, KY, 40505, by 5pm, January 15th, 2018.
