Come Figure Out what Tapp’s is Excited About (Nudes. It’s Nudes.)

figure out Tapps Art Center presents the second annual showing of Figure Out: A Figurative Art Show.  The show will open on First Thursday and run through Saturday, September 27.

A mix of painting, sculpture, drawing, photography, and film, all of the pieces will depict the human form in one way or another.  A panel lunch on art and sexuality including artists, educators, and coalition partners will occur on Wednesday, September 17 at noon.

In addition to the artwork, the event on Thursday night will feature live music by Lindsay Holler’s Western Polaroids and an interactive drawing lesson by Said Bouftass, a Moroccan artist who studied in Paris, and is now the artist-in-residence at Redbird Studio.  Bouftass will teach participants how to do large-scale portraits, pictures larger than life-size in an effort to actually use the body while drawing it.

Opening night is September 4, 6 - 10 pm at Tapp’s Art Center on 1644 Main St.
