25 Naked Dancers and Courageous Conversations

On Monday evening, we joined Arthur Aviles in his dance for Movement Research’s Gala at Judson Memorial Church. Movement Research Arthur founded and runs BAAD, Bronx Academy of Arts and Dance. He is a magnificent dancer and a really lovely human. It was a truly beautiful experience, 25 (actually 29) naked dancers, of all shapes, races, genders, ages, dancers and not. Here are some pictures I picked up from the web, they aren’t mine but I thought I would share them

Just Can’t Keep the Clothes On!

One session scheduled, another unplanned, this weekend I posed twice at Minerva’s Drawing Studio. On Saturday we had a group of Art History students getting exposure to actual studio settings as part of their class. On Sunday the scheduled model did not show up, so off came the clothes and I filled in. It was a full house of artists ready to draw from life and I am glad to help out when I can. Here are 2 drawings by Charles H. Connelly, one of my favorites, .
