Artists featured in Carrie Leigh's NUDE
Vitaliy & Elena Vasilieva
are currently exhibiting at the
M17 Contemporary Art Center
in the Ukraine.
The Exhibit is titled "No Art."
Originally the Art of Joel Adams blog, I had at one point posted so much to the blog to promote Carrie Leigh's NUDE magazine, I suggested that it become the Official blog to the magazine.. After many wonderful years as such, the blog has come back to me. My Art site is currently being revamped and when it is done, I will be moving all blogs over to that site... Enjoy
