Photographic Exhibition – Stuart House, Liskeard
July 13, 2015 @ 9:30 am - 3:30 pm
The Beauty of Maturity – this photographic exhibition, held at Stuart House in Liskeard, Cornwall 13th – 18th July 2015, features the work of 2 local artists, Maureen Douglas-Green and Howard Nowlan in aid of St Luke’s Hospice in Plymouth. Taking inspiration from the beauty of land and seascapes, they explore the beauty of the older female nude form. They raise awareness of the natural mature form to show that personality, grace and femininity outweigh the stereotypical concept of the female model.
All models featured are in their 40’s, 50’s and 60’s and have given permission for their images to be displayed to fundraise for St Luke’s Hospice where dedicated staff provide end of life care to thousands of patients each year. Most of us have been affected by cancer in some way, hence the choice of a local hospice seemed relevant and personal. Whilst some of the models are experienced and even naturists, many of the images were taken by ladies for the first time as private portfolios and in one case as a 50th birthday present for her husband. The results are stunning and the exhibition hopes to persuade others to be more self-confident in their bodies. Move over Calendar Girls!
Please come along (or tell others) and support the exhibition at Stuart House, Barras Street, Liskeard, Cornwall PL14 6AB between 13th-18th July. The event is open from 10am to 3.30pm Monday to Friday and from 10am to 12.30 pm on Saturday.
