Wearable Art

Photo by: Swae Photography Designer/artist: Jennifer Charkow

Opening reception: August 5, 6-8pm
Exhibition: August 3-28
Curator: Robin Allen


Join us for this fun and fashionable exhibition, featuring garments, jewelry, and other accessories that are meant to be worn or displayed on the human form. Using traditional or non-traditional materials, artists have created exquisite pieces of wearable art for men, women, and children.

Set up like a fun, fashionable clothing and art store, the CCA Gallery’s Wearable Art Marketplace will be filled with wearable art ranging from fun and funky t-shirts to one-of-a-kind wear-out-on-the-town art pieces. (We’ll even have dressing rooms!) 2-D artists will offer work that focuses on clothing and its impact and influence on contemporary life including ceremony, tradition, and social statement.

During the month there will be live models, fashion consultants, styling workshops, and the
Wear It Well Ladies’ Night Fundraiser on August 4.
