WESTON residents can prepare to be mesmerised with Bev G Star's Humans of Weston exhibition this July.

The exhibition will be on display at Weston Museum from July 8 until the first week of October, Tuesday to Saturday, between 10.00am and 4.00pm.

The exhibition is dedicated to showcasing the community spirit and the creativity of the town. Those that visit can expect to see a wide range of artwork sourced from events such as the GLOW and the Good Grief Weston Festivals.

A spokesperson from Weston Town Council said: "The experiences you gain will be invaluable, leaving you inspired to contemplate your own self-esteem and the significance of expressing yourself creatively. Witness firsthand the transformative power of art as it brings people together and celebrates the rich tapestry of human stories.

"We invite you to be a part of this extraordinary journey at Weston Museum, where the community of Weston-super-Mare takes centre stage. Discover the beauty, resilience, and profound sense of belonging that radiates from within the hearts of the people who call this place home. Humans of Weston is an exhibition that will leave an indelible mark on your soul, inviting you to explore the depths of your own creative spirit."

Bev will also be showcasing her own original portraits from her Humans of Weston project.

It is hoped that residents come away from the exhibition feeling inspired and proud of where they live.

Bev herself feels a close connection to the seaside town. After growing up in an area marked by social deprivation, Bev was inspired capture the lives of those around her, hoping that this could bring people together.

She transformed her Humans of Weston portraits into a CIC, which she is the managing director of. She also created the Humans of Weston radio show.

Bev's talents have garnered recognition and numerous commissions. She has been commissioned by Upfest, Europe's largest Street Art & Graffiti festival, where her works have added to the festival's vibrant atmosphere. Culture Weston has also sought Bev's artistic creativity for their Glow event for two consecutive years, including the Super Shrines project and Climate Carnival. Including Weston Arboretum's light festival. 

Bev has also joined forces with North Somerset Community Learning to encourage people to bring their ideas to life.
