Click Read More/Comment for additional pictures. On December 8th Nikisha and I attended the opening reception of the highly anticipated Neekid Blk Gurls exhibit held at the Rush Gallery in New York. Curated by Danny Simmons, abstract painter and co- founder of the amazing Rush Philanthropic Arts Foundation , Neekid Blk Gurls is all about the beautiful Black female form shown in an artistically au natural state. The exhibit showcased the work of well- known photographers to photographers you will want to get to know but either way this was a collective group of beauty, electivity, innovation and talent highlighted in its rawest form.

In case you still have not had a chance to see Neekid Blk Gurls you still have plenty of time to view the exhibit which will be showcased until January 27th, 2012 but till then, here is a behind the scenes look at the opening reception.
