Unless you’ve been able to ignore the Internet for a few decades, you know the common denominator of “not safe for work” e-mail subjects or subreddits is nudity — a slang shorthand {9} The Gallery has borrowed for its artistic look into the naked human form.

In “NSFW,” 38 artists explore the constructs of beauty, gender, and mortality with their interpretations of nakedness. Those featured include local contemporary fine artist Jon Wassom, ceramist and sculptor Lucas J. Knowles, painter and muralist Beth Tom, and Artel director — and the collection’s co-presenter — Tara Sharpe.

See the free First Friday show from 6 to 10 p.m. on May 6 at 1229 Grand Avenue. The exhibition remains on view through Saturday, May 28, with another public reception on Third Friday. Details are at www.9thegallery.com or www.artelshow.com.
