Back by popular demand, In the Flesh V is an examination of contemporary figurative art. This all-media exhibition features work by 19 artists, all of whom express the human form in a unique and thought-provoking way.

“The selected works, through varied mediums and interpretations, whether overt or figurative in meaning, evoke a sense of flesh, physicality, or different ideas about the human presence.” ­–Jeff Huntington

Mark Thomas Anderson (VA), Joseph Bellofatto Jr. (VA), Michelle Bennett (NY), Stacy Cantrell (VA), Erika Cleveland (DC), Sarah Coote (PA), Spencer Corbett (MI), T.P. Dunn (TN), Donna Faranda (NY), Oren Goldenberg (MI), Soomin Ham (VA), Isabelle Klauder (NC), Arthur Kwon Lee (VA), Amanda Muhlena (IL),  Molly Marie Nuzzo (MD), Lauren Amalia Redding (NY), Kelly Stevenson (GA), SK Sullivan (NY), Gray Swartzel (NY)
