It is time once again to get “Uncovered”. Visual artists are familiar with the nude human body as subject matter, though it can often get censored when it comes to the public eye. Come see a wealth of new work by some of our favorite artists that often goes unseen.

This year we will be filling our gallery with nude photography, paintings, drawings and for the first time at The Parliament, body painting!

Artists include:
Freddie Graves
George Weiss III
Karen Paust
Darren Jordan
Peter Danko
Kris McElligott
Annelise Vuono
Dillon Samuelson
Jaimie Mecier
Susan Scofield
Donna Welsh

We will be having a beer tasting at this event provided by the Beer Ace, as well as other refreshments from Flats Cafe.

Music for the evening will be a jazz band with Hayden Diener.

We hope you can join us for this one of a kind event!
