Vanblaere opened Naked Art with friend Jennifer Staib in a space on 1st Avenue North. The gallery moved to a house formerly occupied by Zoe's Forest Park at 3815 Clairmont Avenue in 2004. The gallery, which specializes in artist-made functional items, got its name from the owner's feeling that art should be accessible to everyone, and features art that can be appreciated by the "naked eye".
In 2010, Vanblaere purchased the house next door and moved the gallery. Volunteers formed a "chain" and passed items from the old location to the new location.
