Au Naturel at Del Ray Artisans Gallery

Del Ray Artisans presents Au Naturel, an art exhibit that goes beyond the traditional interpretation of nude or naked.  In this exhibit, artists express their unique interpretation of “au naturel” as they celebrate the natural and exposed, the pure and untouched, the bare and raw, and the candid. Their work interprets figures, objects, emotions, and feelings; uncompleted projects and unintentional steps “in the process”.  Patrons can expect to see the vulnerable, the powerful, and expressions with no cover or filter—objects or beings in full exposure or that are in their truest and most candid form and natural state.

The exhibit runs from August 7 through August 30, 2015. Please join us at the opening reception on Friday, August 7 from 7 to 9 pm at Del Ray Artisans gallery.  For more information about Au Naturel, visit or contact Tamara Wilkerson at
