The third iteration of intimately-scaled, signature nudes by celebrated local artist Carrie Jadus (b. 1976), “Blue Nudes III”, opens with an artist’s reception Thursday, September 8 from 6-9. Attendees are encouraged to dress in blue, and blue-tinted champagne will be served. The exhibition continues through October 1.

Jadus’ last such series debuted in 2018, and collectors have been patiently nudging her for more. The vigorous, active brush strokes and warm, fleshy hues with which Jadus captures her models contrast starkly with the disarmingly-cool backgrounds they float against. The intensity of the blue and the near-absence of context coupled with perhaps the oldest of artistic subjects—the human form—fuses traditional and contemporary to create paintings that are current, yet virtually timeless.
