I will be at “Exposure – A Gallery of Fine Art Photography” in Santa Fe tonight and tomorrow night signing commemorative posters. There are quite a few of my limited edition prints on exhibit in the gallery through the end of September.
The 200 pieces of fine art photographs, sculptures, and paintings are just a part of Nude Nite Orlando. “It’s made of painters, performers, acrobats, …” explains Director Kelly Stevens. “It’s about visual extravaganza. A feast if you will.”
Nude Nite is as much a happening as it is an art show. Thousands of people attended the show during its three night run. And if you came late you’d end up standing in line. The attraction is for the performances as much as the art. There are burlesque shows, acrobats performing on stage and on a large hoop suspended from the ceiling. Roving models, live body painting demonstrations, and performance artists moving through the crowds.
Attendees are encouraged to bring their cameras as long as they are respectful and understand the limits of what can be done with their photographs. “If you think about the event from a photography standpoint it probably has two dozen of the most incredible visuals that I’d like photograph,” continues Stevens. “It’s a very inspiring event. Full of color and texture, which is what I think photographers really like.”
The tag line, “Take a nude home tonight” is meant to encourage attendees to purchase art. And when they do, they receive free tickets to Nude Nite for life.
The Nude Nite Tampa juried art show has selected “Seis Trace” for its 2011 exhibition. The event draws thousands of fine art enthusiasts and artists from around the country. The show is held in the Trolley Barn at The Heights and runs from March 3 – 5.
“Seis Trace” is from Suhler’s (e)Motion collection. Nude Nite Tampa is the third show this year to feature one of his fine art nude photographs.
The largest nude art show in the country, Nude Nite Orlando, has been chosen Tom Suhler’s, “Faberge” for its 2011 show. Now in its 13th year, this juried show draws thousands of entries from around the world. The event runs from February 10 – 12 plus a “meet the artist party” on the 9th.
“Faberge” is from Suhler’s (e)Motion collection. This is the 5th photograph from that series to receive recognition from the fine art community. Nude Nite Orlando is the second show this year to feature one of his fine art nude photographs.
