Out-of-Focus Nudes

Ali Miranda is a Cuban-born, Academy of Art in San Francisco-educated artist who specializes in scintillating nudes that sometimes come enveloped in filtered hues and out-of-focus views. Equally inspired by the naked form and the play on color and light is Cheryl Maeder, a photographer trained at the Kunstgewerbeschule in Zurich who has had work displayed at the Frost Museum and the Boca Raton Museum of Art. Both talented, top-tier working artists are featured in "Sensibilities," the end-of-the-year shebang at Boynton Beach's ActivistArtistA Gallery. Coinciding with the up-and-coming gallery's VIP "Black and White" affair, it will be a night in which local art aficionados can hobnob and view Miranda's and Maeder's scantily clad impressionistic takes -- which at times require a bit of squinting to truly admire the majesty. This affair is taking place Saturday from 7 to 11 p.m. at the ActivistArtistA Gallery, located at 422 W. Industrial Ave. in Boynton Beach. It's a free show that, according to gallery owner Rolando Chang Barrero, is a formal(ish) event; wearing black or white ties is up to you. Visit ActivistArtistA.com, or call 786- 521-1199.
