The Au Naturel show opened tonight at the CCC Art Gallery just a few blocks from my lovely little apartment. This is an annual international juried competition of 2-D work showing "the nude in the 21st century" and the whole town has become a part of it. Most galleries and restaurants around Astoria will also have figurative shows during March while Au Naturel is up. Thats just one more little reason to love this place. Here are some images from the show.
