Skintones Are A Glory

The majesty of our faces without the subtle variations in skin pigmentation are enough to fascinate for a lifetime. Add the rich complexity of hues we are given at birth and human beings become the most vivid celebration of place on the planet. We bring our heritage with us in endless numbers of ways. The color of our skin is, to me, the most evocative and compelling tale of where we come from and who we are. Research shows that the amount of ultraviolet (UV) radiation our ancestors absorbed from the sun influenced the levels of melanins (pigment compounds) their bodies produced to either absorb or shield their DNA from both radiation damage and the benefits of vitamin D.

    "Appreciating the Female Form through History" - March 23 in New York City, 4pm - 6:30pm Join Image Master Carla Mathis for an intimate guided tour through several of the collections at The Met in New York City. Viewing artworks of women throughout history, Carla will share her wisdom and perspective for appreciating the female form. Artists paint and sculpt what they see. When they look at a woman they paint or sculpt where her body is curvy, where the skin is taught over her flesh, where it is soft and supple, where her skin wrinkles, the texture of her hair AS IT IS. The advent of photoshopping and reshaping our bodies has diminished our appreciation of who we are of how beautifully we are formed. This innovative tour will explore the connection between a woman’s body and her identity. The intimate relationship between how she looks and who she is as revealed through centuries of fine art. These paintings, these sculptures have much to teach us about self-acceptance, about owning our own beauty. Limited openings, register now to reserve your space. Upon registration you will receive meet-up details and an email receipt to bring at admission. Your Met admission is included in this fee, so you will not need to pay any additional at the door.
