Call For Artists: Jen Deveroux's Nude Photography Show at monOrchid in November (NSFW)

The galleries of Roosevelt Row are certainly no strangers to showing off artsy nude photography. As a matter of fact, stylishly rendered pictures of the naked form have been a regular part the downtown Phoenix art scene mix, whether its scandalous shots leaving little to the imagination or more elegant and evocative works.

Jen Deveroux, however, wants the upcoming nude photography exhibition she's organizing at monOrchid in November to walk the line between these two extremes. As such, the nightlife promoter is seeking to showcase a mix of "high-caliber works" created by local photogs that utilize nudity or carnal imagery but are still within the realm of tastefulness.
