A PROFESSIONAL life model is appealing to artists to take part in his forthcoming Pawlett mini-festival celebrating the beauty of the naked human form.

Dave Clarke, the founder of 77 Modelling Agency, based in Pawlett, is holding ‘Where There’s Life – a Festival of Life Drawing’, over the weekend of April 26/27.

Clarke, whose naked form was the inspiration for a sculpture now owned by Charles Saatchi, is passionate about giving life modelling renewed recognition as an art form to get excited about.

The arts celebration will be held across Pawlett village hall and pavilion, from 10am to 8pm on the Saturday, and 10am to 5pm on the Sunday.

As well as viewing the collection of nudes, visitors will have the chance to draw clothed female models in sessions to be held at the village hall from 10.30am to 3pm on both days.

Artists can submit artwork for show at rates of five pieces for £5 or £12 for a large board of 8ft by 4 ft.

Setting up for artists will take place between 2pm and 9pm on Friday April 25.

To inquire about submitting your work for ‘Where There’s Life’ call Dave on 07767-344825.
