New heights of creativity at third annual wearable art fashion show

This year’s event features 13 stunning pieces created from regional artists

Have you got your tickets yet for the third annual Wearable Art Fashion Show at the Campbell River Art Gallery?

Be prepared to see new heights of creativity as artists push past the boundaries of high fashion to create art for the human form at this exciting show, set for 7 p.m Saturday, Oct. 20.

This year’s event features 13 stunning pieces created from artists from Campbell River, Quadra Island, Courtenay, Alert Bay and Sointula.

Each piece will be performed to music in a cabaret-style setting in the Main Gallery, so audience members can get a close-up view of each artist’s flight of fancy.

“The first two Wearable Art Fashion Shows were a huge success and we’re keen to build on that by providing bigger and better shows each year,” said Jeanette Taylor, CR Art Gallery executive director.

“I think the audience will be amazed when they see the stunning creations these artists will present.”

The show is sponsored by Sandy Baker of RE/MAX Check Realty and artists will be competing for five prizes.

Georgie’s Furnishings, Quest Shoes, Something Special Gifts, Mothership Adventures, the City of Campbell River and Comox Strathcona Waste Management will be presenting prizes in five categories:

  • Audience Choice, Best in Show,
  • Best Performance,
  • Best Use of Recycled Materials
  • Best Artistic Concept.

Tickets are $30 for CR Art Gallery members and $35 for non-members and they include hors d’oeuvres.

The event, which is a fundraiser for the Campbell River Art Gallery, will also feature a silent auction, with a wide variety of handcrafted items to bid on.

Tickets are available at the Campbell River Art Gallery, open 12 p.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday to Saturday.

Call the gallery at 250-287-2261 or e-mail admin@crartgallery.ca for more information.
