Nude: 14th Annual Exhibit Exploring the Uncovered Human Form

The Cincinnati based non-profit arts organization and gallery, Manifest, invites visual artists and designers to submit original works that address the uncovered human form in current art. Open to any and all traditional and non-traditional 2D and 3D visual arts media. The human body is a popular subject for many reasons, the most obvious being that it is us. Throughout history (and pre-history) the representation of the human form has been charged with tremendous energy. Whether it be a religious edict that one should not depict the human form -a taboo, or the glorious opposite- a revelation of mastery over form in the crafting of sensuous and life-like physical human beauty, the art of the body has moved us through time. $40 for up to 4 entries. $5 per each additional entry. Deadline: June 4, 2022. More info. Contact: email or call 513-861-3638.
