The Rossland Council for Arts and Culture (RCAC) and VISAC Gallery are pleased to bring Rossland its first wearable art juried fashion show and exhibition: The Art of Adornment.
Wearable art is handmade. It is one of a kind. It is art on your body. It is using the human body as the canvas.
Thanks to the generous support of the Columbia Kootenay Cultural Alliance (CKCA) and Columbia Basin Trust, this show is an opportunity for local artisans to work outside their comfort zone and let their imaginations take flight using the human body as their canvas.
Come and celebrate International Women’s Day with us at The Art of Adornment Juried Fashion Show and Award Gala on March 7, 2020. International Women’s Day (March 8) is a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women. The day also marks a call to action for accelerating gender parity.
Tickets are $15 and available at Out of the Cellar or online at rosslandartscouncil.com.
