It’s a bit unique – it’s a bit silly – so why not be part of a portrait and sculptural exhibition that will draw attention to the beauty of the hairless head? Artists are invited to enter a 2D or 3D work that will capture a person bald through chemotherapy, alopecia, shaving, genes, just born or simply a vision of what someone might look like without hair. The exhibition follows the highly successful inaugural competition inspired by Deb Rielly who lost her hair through chemotherapy treatment and faced taunts as she refused to wear a wig or a scarf. All exhibition proceeds to the Cancer Council.
