Gallery 66 NY announces its juried Open Call "Fashion As Art II" for all you Fashionista Creatives. Our Fashion As Art exhibit last year was such a big hit we have decided to do it again with even more flair. This call is open to fashion designers with an art flair and artists with a fashion flair to their work. Fashion as Art 2 will be the month of June, and will consist of artworks for the walls inspired by fashion, sculpture inspired by fashion, fashions inspired by art. There will be a fashion show during the month and outfits will go on display in the gallery and town-wide in the windows of local businesses.
Last year a few examples included a dress made of burlap coffee sacks, silkscreened felt evening dress and as every fashion show must end with a gown, there was even an edible wedding veil and a bridal gown made of Barbie dresses.
Do you have a stunning or sublime or crazy, creative idea for making your fashion statement? Bring it on! Do you have artworks that use fabric or relate to fashion? We want to see it!
Gallery 66 NY is excited to announce our jurors for this year. For the fashions in "Fashion As Art II" our juror is Kelly Cutrone, owner of "Peoples Revolution" and on TV: MTV's True Life, The Hills and the City, as well as Dr. Phil and Kell on Earth.
