Naked Art Gallery will celebrate Valentine’s Day by bringing back a popular exhibit and will also raise money for local causes — Woodlawn nonprofit GraceWorks and the Parkinson Association of Alabama — at two February events.

The gallery will present “Microlove,” an annual Valentine-themed show featuring miniature art and handmade gifts and jewelry by 50 artists, from Feb. 2-24.

“This show features a collection of tiny art in a variety of mediums, no larger than a postcard,” said gallery owner Vero Vanblaere.

Much of the work is made from recycled materials, according to Vanblaere.

At the opening reception, Friday, Feb. 2, 5-8 p.m., 100 percent of bar tips will benefit GraceWorks, which provides field trips, community projects and educational experiences each summer for inner-city youth.

Naked Art will also host a one-night show of art by Parkinson’s patients on Feb. 16, 5-8 p.m., part of Third Friday in Forest Park. Bar tips will go to the Parkinson Association of Alabama.

Vanblaere has a strong personal reason to help people suffering from Parkinson’s Disease.
