Nudes 

February 2021 

The one thing that I want to share regarding preparation for and presentation of this group show is the seemingly random but wholly appropriate juxtaposition of two presences -that of Richard Pawlak's street scene frescoes of brightly clothed people walking, sitting, working.. These vibrant images in the gallery windows are a warm greeting to passersby, and to me, reflect a deep love and appreciation for people. And inside, the collection of undressed, bare-naked people in the month of February, the coldest month, (some would say the hardest month) is on display. Naked in our barest form without trappings we are equal in flesh and bone and mortal love. When it is cold outside, we might have pause to be reminded of the human condition and the struggle for simple existence. What we can praise of the human form, our barest soul, is to appreciate and embrace love and beauty in all forms.

Maybe St. Valentine would approve.  

Thank you and enjoy -
