Emily - I love taking care of this lil' pup! She's so cute, why do puppies have to grow up?
Jeanine - "Beautiful Women Project"
Today I spent 90 minutes of this grey day strolling through the Southampton Art Gallery being inspired by the Beautiful Women Project (this archway leads to the gallery)
When Artist Cheryl-Ann Webster's 13 year old daughter expressed dislike for her developing body, Cheryl-Ann wanted to create a positive visual role model for her and others. The result is 120 life-size clay sculptures of real women aged 19-91. She made a plaster cast of each woman, listened while they talked about their lives, and then added her mixed media skills to each. Each sculpture has a name representing the essence of the woman and a short story outlining the details of her life. It was touching and inspiring.
