AdamsArtExpose’

SWIMMING NUDE IN ART AND PHOTOGRAPHY and a

summer phenomenon in gay Palm Springs

Thomas Eakins is one of the first artists to

encourage the use of nude models in life

drawing. As early as 1886 as an instructor

at the Pennsylvania Academy of art, he was

dismissed from his position because he

removed the loin cloth from a male model

with female students in the class.

reason to study nude models to create the

art. Much of his subject content revolved

around nude swimmers which was a way to

depict the nude without excessive criticism.

Nude swimming was accepted among

males during this time.

He was married, however spent most of

his time with Samual Murray, who was

a student and then companion of Eakins

although he was 15 years younger. Of

course being gay was not recognized as a

legitimate sexual preference at that point

Eakins was known to be not necessarily a

nice guy. He showed bad manners in being

rude and sometimes sloppy and slobbery

as mentioned by his biographer Lloyd

Goodrich. He was reported to have been

bipolar and was being treated with medicinal

opiates which may have contributed

to his behavior. He was also reported to

be an exhibitionist and a voyeur. Which

may have been a misinterpretation of his

behavior as he created art and photography

using the male nude which of course is a

of American history, however, Eakins most

certainly was.

His work in painting and photography will

stand a model for representing and advocating

for the nude as a legitimate model

for photography and visual art.

JERSEY’S JOURNAL by jersey Shore

I usually post about my mental

health on Facebook, and bitch about

scumbag people here in Jersey’s

Journal. Today I’m going to switch it

around.

I am diagnosed with depression and

anxiety. It’s a battle as an entertainer,

especially. It’s actually very common

among entertainers. The irony of it

all.

Let’s give you a disease that draws

you in when your job is to be out

and proud.

When you have no desire for life,

boy is it tough. I’ve done it many,

many, many times! It’s part of the

job. I’m here to entertain you!!!

But, like most things in life it isn’t

easy. I’m so lucky for my wonderful

friends. I am very blessed in that

capacity.

I have a solid base of people supporting

me. I am very lucky in that

aspect. So I guess I should say Thank

you to all of my support system.

Thank you!

my article. Now just seems like the

best place to stop!

Peace, Love, and Support,

Jersey

THE LAST WORD by Greg Pettis

OMG, where to begin.

The Republicans, AFTER & YEARS, have no plan

to repeal, replace or even repair Obamacare. Three

courageous Senators stood and said NO to removing

31 million people from access to healthcare.

Trump blasts the entire Senate as incompetent

while his administration loses not just a Press Secretary

but a Chief of Staff – all within 6 months of

inauguration.

The new Communications Director is nicknamed

“the Mooch” but it looks like the new name is “Potty-mouth”.

I know my mother would have washed

my mouth out with soap if I even used one of those

words.

The First son-in-law testified before the Senate

committee investigating Russia involvement with

the election and he through First Son – Donnie

Jr under the bus. Former campaign chairman

Manafort is up next. He has been subpoenaed.

Trump tells Independent Counsel to stay out of

his finances – methinks Mueller may already have

the tax returns.

Senator Graham of the Carolinas tells the press

that there will be “holy hell” to pay if Trump

tries to fire the Attorney General or Independent

Counsel. Even Richard Nixon got to year 6 of his

Presidency………..

bill that came from the Senate had NO WAY TO

FINANCE IT ATTACHED. So, the conservatives

want to cut off their noses to spite their face and

the liberals say damn the cost we want what we

want.

Locally, Cathedral City continues to move toward

being the most progressive city in the valley. The

Council passed a resolution 4-1 supporting and

committing to the Paris Climate agreement. In

September, they will be looking at requiring fast

food restaurants that serve kids meals to offer milk

or water as the default drink, still allowing the

parent or child to order a soft drink, but milk as

default if no choice is made.

Districts are moving forward in Indio and Cathedral

City in anticipation of the 2018 election.

Indio has narrowed down to 3 choices and Cathedral

City to 7. CC will cut those to 3 at the next

council meeting. I believe both cities are planning

on a final decision in September.

Labor Day there will be a Resistance Rally at the

Cathedral City Town Square Park by the Civic

Center. It will be from 5:30pm – 7:00pm and feature

speakers from local and county government,

education, healthcare, environment and more.

There will even be kid’s activities so folks can bring

the family. Come join us as the valley says NO to

Donald Trump and his regressive policies!
