Feb. 8, 2012--The University of Wisconsin-River Falls Art Department is sponsoring a student exhibition and fashion show of Wearable Art in Gallery 101 of the Kleinpell Fine Arts building Feb. 8-23. A reception and fashion show will begin at 4:30 p.m. on Feb. 15 in Gallery 101.
The Wearable Art Exhibition and Fashion show celebrates the artistic talents of students taking art classes at UW-River Falls during the 2011-12 school year. “Wearable art” includes almost all non-traditional materials.
The parameters that exhibitioners follow are:
1. The theme of “wearable art” is open to all non-traditional materials, (with the exception of perishable food).
2. Artists must create their own template for their wearable art.
3. Any wearable art sewn over any other clothing made of usual materials, is not permitted.
4. Multiple non-traditional materials may be used.
There will be prizes chosen by our judges in the categories of the Most Inventive Wearable Art Garment and Most Creative use of non-traditional materials. The Best In Show prize will be chosen by popular vote.
Gallery hours are Monday through Friday, 9 a.m.-5 p.m. and 7-9 p.m., and Sunday 2-4 p.m. This event is free and open to the public.
