Stamps Professor Lou Marinaro’s painted bronze sculpture Lure is on view at the Manifest Gallery (2727 Woodburn Ave, Cincinnati, Ohio) as part of the 10th Annual NUDE exhibition, subtitled “A Decade of Exploring the Uncovered Human Form.” This exhibition is on view through September 14, 2018.
Throughout history the representation of the human form has been charged with tremendous energy, both positive and negative. Whether it be a religious edict that one should not depict the human form — a taboo — or the glorious opposite, the art of the body has moved us through time. NUDE is an international competitive exhibition dedicated to the uncovered form in current art.
For this exhibit 166 artists from 38 states and 8 countries, including Australia, Belgium, Canada, England, Germany, Greece, Italy and Turkey, submitted 519 works for consideration. Nineteen works by the following 16 artists from 11 states, Canada, and Germany were selected by several jurors for presentation in the gallery and the Manifest Exhibition Annual publication.
