The Art of Adornment is a juried fashion show and exhibition celebrating International Women’s Day. The Rossland Council for Arts and Culture and VISAC Gallery are excited to partner on this unique and exciting project highlighting wearable art.
Wearable art is handmade. It is one of a kind. It is art on your body. It is using the human body as the canvas.
Thanks to the generous support of the Columbia Kootenay Cultural Alliance and Columbia Basin Trust, this show is an opportunity for local artisans to work outside their comfort zone and let their imaginations take flight using the human body as their canvas. For this event all types of design are encouraged, celebrating all genders.
The call is open to artists currently residing in the West Kootenay for submissions of original works. All types of wearable art design are welcome. Maximum two submissions per category per designer. Collaborative submissions up to two artists/designers. Submissions must be safe for models to wear, unless designed for display only.
All work accepted must have been created within two years and available throughout the entire showing. Artwork may be for sale, but it is not required. Entry deadline is Jan. 17. Submission information available at https://rosslandartscouncil.com/visual-arts.
