Art and Soul by Phoebe Gallery in downtown Muncie will feature the human body as an art form in their August exhibit, Bellezza del Nudo (beauty of the nude). Phoebe Wantz, Gallery owner, has chosen this theme, after many artists, including herself, have had their art work consisting of nudes rejected by galleries and art competitions. Forty eight artists locally, nationally, and internationally will be featured in this show.
In order to handle this delicate subject material, Wantz has covered the front windows of the Gallery, and has posted a warning on the door of the Gallery that anyone who is sensitive to this subject matter be warned prior to entry. No one under eighteen years of age (without a parent) will be admitted to this show, and a security guard will be at the door at the Opening Reception to check ID’s.
Denise Broyles, aka Dame Leo, will be catering this event. Wine will be provided by the Gallery. Phil Dunn will be playing music at his keyboard and singing. He’s our very own Mr. Music Man.
The Show is hung and ready for visitors. Art and Soul by Phoebe will be open Friday, July 30th and Saturday, July 31st from 10 am to 5 pm. Our Opening Artists Reception is Thursday, August 5th from 5 pm to 9 pm. Regular business hours are Tuesday thru Saturday 10 am to 5 pm, closed Sundays, Mondays and Holidays.
