The Nude 2012 

When: Saturdays, 1-5 p.m. Continues through Dec. 15 2012
Studio Quercus presents The Nude 2012: “an art exhibit of human nakedness in all its beauty and pathos.” The exhibition gathers work from more than a dozen artists, spanning media from photography to painting to sculpture. The gallery’s sensibility for the humorous and playfully off-beat in sexuality (see Tim Sharman and Walter Robinson’s work as Tag Team, or look no further than the gallery’s doorstop — a pair of ceramic tits) is readily apparent, as in Rocky Angel’s Where’s Waldo?-esque painting of a beachside sex party/alien invasion, or M. Louise Stanley’s painting of two part-bird, part-woman creatures devouring the corpse of a man. On the more serious side of the spectrum there is Julianne Wallace Sterling’s gripping portrait of herself, red in the face, crouching in a corner with an expression registering weariness and intrigue, or Cindy Lemon’s grim, expressionist canvas bearing a man in what appears to be a shower stall. The Nude 2012 runs the gamut — this much is sure. Through December 15 at Studio Quercus (385 26th St., Oakland). 510-452-4670 or StudioQuercus.com
