The Marco Island Center for the Arts opened their latest show Tuesday evening with a reception at the center's gallery on Winterberry Drive. Entitled 'Forme de la Femme,' the exhibit features new interpretations on an old theme, celebrating the female body.
This has been a staple of artists for millennia, probably going back to when a caveman admired his significant other as she doffed her bearskin, and proceeding through Goya's 'Maja Desnuda' and Duchamps' 'Nude Descending a Staircase.' But the takes on this well-worn row presented by the artists at the Center for the Arts showed the topic is far from exhausted.
