Regarding 'Nude artist's fury at 'explicit' work ban' [Observer, October 16]: where do we draw the line? As a student of Life Drawing at
Harrow Arts Centre, I and many of my fellow students were really annoyed by the Arts Centre's reluctance to show nudes at a current art exhibition at the centre.
We feel it is ridiculous to have this view with the kind of programmes which can be openly viewed on TV any night of the week, by people of any age, and to try to prohibit exhibition of nude painitings, which after all, are a celebration of the human form and have been central to art since earliest times.
The article mentioned it being 'government policy'. I can't believe this to be the case, if it was so, it would affect all major art galleries in London! Come on, Harrow Arts Centre and Chris Mote, Conservative councillor - who, by the way, should try this very exacting and challenging art form for himself.
