Naked Art Gallery's colorful walls and untypical approach to art has caught the attention of many publications, including The New York Times, Eccentric America and the Rand McNally atlas. We get visitors from all over the world in our gallery, but until your next visit, take a quick peek in this 360 degree Google tour.
Over 70 "not-yet-famous" artists share space at Naked Art. For nearly 20 years great artists have shown at this unique gallery, focusing on functional art, wearable creations and art made with recycled materials. We call it "art for the people" and strive to bring pieces that are within everyone's budget. We strongly believe that everyone can become a collector and find a place for a little art in their lives.
The name "Naked Art" was chosen because we want you to appreciate the artists' work with the "naked eye." No raised brows here!
Whether you live in Birmingham or are only here for a visit, Naked Art makes a great stop as part of a weekend escape around the Magic City!
Naked Art Gallery is located in Forest Park, a fun neighborhood
located just minutes from downtown and around the corner from Avondale.
Yes you can walk here from Avondale, or use the awesome Zyp bike share.
There is a Zyp bike station right across the street from the gallery,
and cost only $6 a day to ride all over the Birmingham metro area!
Wearable art is in the house! Jewelry, clothing and accessories,
all hand made by artists, 95% locally.
It is a great feeling to buy art!

each one is unique as they are printed locally on recycled tees.
An opening reception is the best time to meet the artists.

In the back of the gallery, we have a semi-outdoor space with nothing but YARD ART!
This space is open from April through December.
Every Third Friday, Forest Park hosts an open house:
Restaurants have specials, while shops and galleries are open later (until 8 pm).
Catch the shows you may miss during the day, shop for gifts while enjoying
a refreshment. Enjoy the social scene of Forest Park after hours!
There is a good chance you will find a gift here for anyone,
fitting within your price range and without ever having to step into an bad big box.
We have a tiny used book store inside the gallery.
10% of sales benefit the Literacy Council.
Friday night fun...
In the sun room, we have a corner dedicated to free potential art supplies!
If you are a maker, you can pick some treasures to take
home and make something, all we ask in return is a hello and a smile.
You can join this local Artcycle movement on Facebook
and find or donate many more treasures this way.
Our patrons rock!
During our Friday night events, we like to help a local non profit organization
by inviting them to bartend. 100% of tips benefit their charity!
Every Third Friday, the Forest Park merchants host an open house featuring cocktails, sales, specials, live music and the "TOUR DE LOO":
which turns each establishment's restroom into an art installation by local artists.
A judge attributes $200 to the best installation. Sponsored by Silvertron Café!
