An international array of artists is showing original paintings,
sculptures, photographs, and limited edition hand-pulled prints for
the first time in the Upper Delaware Valley as part of "Naked Bodies,
Naked Souls," a group exhibit curated by Jan K. Kapera of JKK Fine Arts.
The exhibit opens at the Loft Gallery at the Delaware Arts Center in
Narrowsburg, NY on Friday, August 13, with a reception from 7-9 p.m.
The show will be on view through September 4.

"The realm of 'Naked Bodies, Naked Souls' is a very private, personal
world; a world of artists' secrets, dreams, feelings, and deepest
emotions," says curator Kapera. "They have expressed the unexpressed--
they have found the way to show spiritual and mystical states of soul
in dream-like, symbolic images."

This exhibit features the work of 16 international artists: Daniel
Barkley (Canadian), Luigi Casalino (Italian), Joanna Chrobak (Polish),
John Dugdale (American, NYC), Barbara Falender (Polish), Michel
Henricot (French), Michael Kuch (American, MA), Tom Misztal (American,
OR), Aleksandra Nowak (American, NJ), Darek Nowakowski (American,
NYC), Egidijus Rudinskas (Lithuanian), Krzysztof Skorczewski (Polish),
Lubomir Tomaszewski (American, CT), David Vance (American, FL), Damian
Wojtowicz (Polish), and Piotr Woroniec (Polish).

"'Naked Bodies, Naked Souls' is not about eroticism, it is about the
beauty of the body and the soul," says Kapera. "It is about human
emotions - loves, sorrows, desires, and quests, happiness and despair."

Free and open to the public, the exhibit is sponsored by the Delaware
Valley Arts Alliance, the Arts Council for Sullivan County, NY, and is
made possible in part with public funds from the Visual Arts Program
of the New York State Council on the Arts.

Loft Gallery is located at the Delaware Arts Center at 37 Main Street,
Narrowsburg, NY. Hours are Tuesday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4
p.m. For more information about the exhibit contact: Rocky Pinciotti, Gallery Director,
