“New Nudes” is a group show of some of the hottest contemporary artists who are either new or showing the male and female body in a new way.

The show will also feature a table of mixed media altered book works by local Washington, CT based artist John Frederick Walker. These works are exquisite yet also reasonably priced and will make the perfect holiday gift for yourself or that special someone.
