'Wearable Expressions'- An exhibition with a difference
Mar '08
Beckstrand & Walker Galleries Wearable Expressions 2008 will start on February 22 - April 20, 2008.

Art doesn't only hang on the wall or sit on pedestals. It also finds expression in the clothing, jewelry and accessories with which people adorn their bodies.

This is wearable art—art that combines aesthetics and function as it adds a fourth dimension of animation and personal expression, through the movements of the people wearing it.

The best in wearable art from around the world is on display in Wearable Expressions, the Palos Verdes Art Center's sixth biennial international juried wearable art exhibition

Clothing is essential to keep people warm and dry. However, from earliest times, man has embellished basic body coverings by using feathers, beads, color and unique styling to express his personality. And true fiber and jewelry artists, like those in this exhibition, make aesthetic statements going far beyond the norm.

As some of most exciting and unique examples of wearable art from next door and around the world, all these pieces are truly unique; most are for sale. All are in competition for $3,200 in cash awards, which will be announced during a free public reception from 5 – 8 p.m. Friday, February 22, 2008.

“Art-to-wear is the unique creation of an artist seeking a fresh alternative to the conventional media of painting and sculpture,” said Gabrielle, curator.

“Each exhibition brings works made with new technology as well as pieces created with unexpected materials used in unusual ways. Yet many are also very serious conceptual works of fiber or jewelry art expressing the concerns and viewpoints of our time.”
