Naked Ladies!

Now that I've got your attention, I have to admit that we're talking about nudes here...the kind of naked ladies that don't want your lust as much as they (or the artist) want to pique your interest. The artist, in this case, is one of the best naked-lady-artists (or artists, period) ever to hoist a camera, Edward Weston. And the naked lady of the title is his model and, eventually, his wife, Charis Wilson.

The point is, the NW Film Center is premiering a movie about them called The Eloquent Nude: The Love and Legacy of Edward Weston and Charis Wilson. It was made by Northwest Documentary Arts and Media, a local production company dedicated to creating quality documentary works in the Pacific Northwest. The story of this couple's passionate relationship and collaboration in creating some of the most significant photographic work of our time is told by Charis Wilson herself. Now age 91, she fills in the often-overlooked intimate details of their relationship and how it shaped modern American photography.

Details: The Eloquent Nude: The Love and Legacy of Edward Weston and Charis Wilson. Mar. 8, 7 pm. Tickets $7 available at the NW Film Center website. Whitsell Auditorium, 1219 SW Park Ave. Phone 503-221-1156.

Love your new postings. How do you make Salem look so good? Definitely want to go to Bewon again, and am going to order tickets for the nudie film.

Do I know how to write an headline or what? We're going, too, so maybe we'll catch you there!
