I’ve read a poll on what viewers find objectionable in art. and nudity topped the list. So let me get on my soapbox here — nudity in art is not scandalous. It’s not even rare. And when it shows fragments of the human body, the closeups can disguise the fact that you are looking at an elbow, back or breast. Keep that in mind when you look at photographer Steve Squall’s exhibition “KANSO.” The Japanese word kanso means simplicity, and he strove to do just that. “I love making … the reoccurring image of the female form my own,” said Squall. “I am also excited to have the opportunity to create images that I consider to be unapologetically beautiful.” The opening reception is during the Oct. 7 Republic Bank First Friday Hop from 7-10 p.m.
