The 13th annual international juried exhibit, “Au Naturel: The Nude in the 21st Century,” is on display through March 14 at Clatsop Community College’s Royal Nebeker Art Gallery, 1799 Lexington Ave., Astoria.

A community reception is at 6 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 7. This year’s juror, Ashley Stull Meyers, will give a brief gallery talk. She is a writer, editor and curator.

Awards to be announced at the reception include cash prizes, purchase awards, a special exhibit award during the 2019-20 season, and a select number of workshop awards. The reception is free and open to the public. A post-reception gathering immediately following the reception will be held at the Inferno Lounge, 77 11th St., Astoria.

Gallery hours are 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. weekdays and 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturdays.

Gallery visitors are invited to cast their vote for their favorite piece in the show anytime throughout the duration of the exhibit.  The ballots will be tallied at the close of the exhibition and the winner of the “People’s Choice Award” will be announced.

The 2019 exhibit includes 43 works by 32 artists from 11 states, plus Canada.
