Female figures

The lowdown -- Works by James Rieck, Christine Bailey and an anonymous artist will go on display at Gallery Imperato Tuesday in an exhibit titled The Exhibitionists. Female figures are the main subjects of the paintings and photographs. The women in Rieck's paintings are cropped at the neck to keep the focus off the subjects' faces. Bailey presents portraits of women removing their clothes, which, along with their golden Victorian frames, recalls portraits done in past centuries. The anonymous photographer presents photos of partially undressed women posing in shopping mall photo booths.

If you go -- The Exhibitionists opens Tuesday and runs through Oct. 7 at Gallery Imperato, 921 E. Fort Ave. Suite 120. There will be a reception 7 p.m.-10 p.m. Sept. 8. Hours are 11 a.m.-7 p.m. Tuesdays-Thursdays, 11 a.m.-9 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays and 1 p.m.-7 p.m. Sundays. For more information, call 443-257-4166 or visit
