Sidetracks Art Gallery takes special pride in sharing its Tenth Annual Naked in New Hope exhibition with the New Hope – Lambertville arts community and beyond.  As customary, the show celebrates the facts and foibles of the human body in all its pain and, glory and begins with a street fair Opening Reception on Saturday evening, September 10, 2016. The exhibit extends through October 29, 2016. 


As in previous years on that Saturday evening, the portion of Stockton Avenue immediately in front of the Gallery will be closed to traffic for the comfort and safety of the Opening Night crowd, and to provide space for outdoor refreshments and conversation.
