A unique new art exhibition focussing on body confidence has opened in Burnham-On-Sea’s Princess Theatre.

Called ‘Exposed’, the event is the first solo exhibition by local artist and illustrator Ann Elson.

Curated by the theatre’s Business Development Officer Beccy Armory and the Visual Arts Co-ordinator Dave Eldergill for The Princess, the exhibition explores “the unprotected, uncovered and revealed, ready to be judged.”

Ann says the collection of work on display to the public is intended to help others see the natural beauty of unveiled body hair, blemishes and marks in all its glory.

In this solo exhibition, Ann draws on experiences relating to the exposed natural female form and the relationships and attitudes towards this.

Ann says she feels “challenged” to be personally exposed by putting this idea of work on display for others to judge, but proud to be exhibited within the theatre’s recently modernised Pizey Room.

The work has been created using biro and pencil onto parchment paper that resembles transparent and flawed natural skin. The

gallery is open Monday to Friday from 11am – 4pm until November 8th and entry is free.
