18th Annual Benefit: Juried Show and Sale of Wearable Art
Tacoma, Wash.—The YWCA RAGS Guild announces a call for entries for its 18th annual juried wearable art show and sale. The RAGS 2012 event will take place March 9–11, 2012, at the new Larson’s Mercedes-Benz of Tacoma in Fife. This year, following the October 2011 grand opening of Larson’s new dealership and showroom at 1701 Alexander Avenue East in Fife, RAGS will have a new home.
Open to all artists working in all media of wearable art—garments, fashion accessories, and jewelry. Two entry types with nonrefundable fees:
Gallery - competition of one-of-a-kind artist made pieces ($15 per entry, up to three entries)
Marketplace - boutique-style sale ($35 entry fee)
All initial entries are juried by digital images. Accepted gallery entries are judged for award from actual works in late February 2012. Cash prizes to gallery winners in garments, accessories, jewelry, and best of show. As a benefit for domestic violence programs of the YWCA Pierce County, RAGS retains 33% of sales in Marketplace; 40% of sales in Gallery.
