Wearable Art 2 fuses Fine Craft, fashion, and fun! Wearable Art 2 was selected from pieces entered in the Saskatchewan Wearable Art Gala (SWAG), which took place November 14, 2015 at the historic Roxy Theatre in Saskatoon. Included in the exhibition are all seven SWAG award-winning pieces, including Best In Show The Paper Princess by Monique Martin and Janet Taylor. Curated by Saskatchewan Craft Council Exhibition and Education Coordinators Leslie Potter and Maia Stark.
Where else will you see intricate embroidery and fine fabrics next to unconventional materials like hot glue and zip ties? International, national, and local artists have created a unique collection of handcrafted dresses, codpieces, corsets, and headpieces. Wearable Art 2 is astonishing in its variety and artistry! The exhibition is suitable for all ages and will inspire artists, designers, and fashion aficionados.
