A new art exhibit at Historic Smithville Park is showcasing fashion from the turbulent 1960s and the career of a local fashion model.
“The Pose: A Sixties Silhouette” is on display at Smithville Park’s Workers House Gallery through Saturday, Jan. 13. The exhibit is a collaboration by Burlington County-based fashion illustrator Lisa Steinberg and photographer Lila Ingui. It pays tribute to 1960s fashion styles and Ingui’s mother, Cheryl Marie Desch, a Philadelphia-based fashion model of the era.
The exhibit consists of vintage photographs and advertisements featuring Desch that Ingui compiled, plus modern drawings created by Steinberg, a resident of Delran, for the exhibit and was inspired by the era.
