The exhibit, “Object,” features mostly acrylic paintings&nbsp;by Joe Bluhm and Adam Volker. By day, the two are co-workers at Moonbot Studios.

That’s how Mollie Corbett describes her third gallery show, "Dangerous Curves." It captures the beauty of eight, full-figured Shreveport-Bossier women through nude and semi-nude portraits. Corbett said she sees herself and many other women in this show.</p><p></p><p>“It’s odd and ironic because so many women are walking around with these dimensions, and yet they’re not being recognized as beautiful in the mainstream media.”</p> Wed, 16 Jan 2013 14:48:03 +0000 Kate Archer Kent 22361 at http://redriverradio.org Dangerous Curves exhibit celebrates full-figured women
