Magnificent 7 Resting Peacefully



Exhibition

Mausoleum at Nunhead Cemetery

Saturday 21st May Open Day 11am-5pm

Curated by Jolanta Jagiello

For the very first time the Mausoleum after its restoration in 2002 is open to the public with a Public Art Exhibition which draws attention to the beautiful architectural features of the small salmon-coloured terracotta Mausoleum which stands beside the path running up the hill on the west side of Nunhead Cemetery. It was built in the Romanesque style with crow-stepped gables and a ridged roof, lined with brown and yellow glazed tiles and ornamented with Celtic motifs, for Mrs Laura Stearns of Radnor House in Twickenham who died in 1900. The Mausoleum is brought to life with artworks on the shelves by the Magnificent 7 Artists: Nick Baelz, Mike Hoath, Sara Scott, Jill Rock, Desiree Ickerodt, Debora Mo, and Lorraine Clarke. With decorative features of birds, and twigs provided by artists Belinda Opie, and Jolanta Jagiello. Come and enjoy this spectacular little jewel in the crown that is Nunhead Cemetery.
