LINCOLN - For over a thousand years the
human body has served as a "canvas" -- with tattoos, henna, body
painting, and piercings -- as well as "inspiration" for stunning
sculptures, drawings, paintings, and photographs -- think
Michelangelo's "David", Botticelli's "Birth of Venus", and Manet's
Logan County Art's new show "The Body -- Canvas and Muse"
consists of figures drawn or painted by LCA members and based on
models in local workshops or classes during the past couple months.
Featured artists include Georgie Borchardt, Jennifer Grimaldi, Lee
Hahn, Bonnie Mayo, Pam Moriearty, Toby Prange, Kerry Rolewicz, Nancy
Saul, and Tony Shuff.
The show opens Thursday July 10th, at the Lincoln Art Institute,
with a reception that's open to the public between 5-8 p.m. that
evening. The gallery is located at 112 S. McLean St., next to the
post office on Lincoln's historic downtown square.
