WHEN: September 8, through October 20, 2019, with an Opening Reception for the exhibit and honoring the gallery’s One Year Anniversary on September 8, 2019 from 12 – 4 pm open to everyone.
WHERE: La Vie Galerie LLC, located at 106 Naylon Ave. in Livingston
La Vie Galerie presents a new exhibit, Naked in Jersey, featuring art and photography by 15 talented artists—most being local New Jersey artists—selected specifically for their diversity of style and depiction of the human form.
La Vie Galerie LLC is a multi-room gallery which continues to exhibit emerging, mid-career and established artists creating contemporary paintings, fine art photography, sculptures and ceramics. The mission of the La Vie Galerie LLC is two-fold: provide its artists greater exposure to a new market and to present special exhibits pertaining to social issues to educate the viewer through visual arts.
Historically, the human form has been revered as an object of beauty or covered and concealed as something to be ashamed of. Naked in Jersey, through the eyes of the artists, removes the trappings of clothing to unveil the essence of the soul. To allow the body to be seen in its natural state is to show the soul of the individual in all its glory and complexity.
The inherent beauty of the human form with an emphasis on sensuality, power, and strength is explored with the work presented in Naked in Jersey.
Work depicted on the invitation were created by Yuri Yurov, Lester Blum, Gail Postal, and Steve Cummings.
