The Nude in the 21st Century

Au Naturel: The Nude in the 21st Century is an international juried competition hosted annually by the Clatsop Community College Royal Nebeker Art Gallery in Astoria, Oregon, with a focus on the time-honored tradition of the nude human figure, an art form that continues to inspire and challenge many artists today as one of the most potentially rewarding subjects to explore. This exhibit represents a wide range of interpretations of the human figure from representational to abstract, and is open to all artists from around the world working in any drawing, painting, and printmaking media in which the handmade mark is employed as the primary means of image-making.


2016 Exhibit Reception: January 28th, 6:00 p.m.

Special tenth anniversary exhibit will be held in memory of Royal Nebeker, internationally renowned artist and beloved instructor who taught at Clatsop Community College for over 30 years and who served as the first juror for the competition.
