Fashion Show of Wearable Art at Galerie Old Chelsea – October 15, 14h
On Sunday October 15 at 2:00pm, the Galerie Old Chelsea will host a fashion show featuring wearable art made by local artists Donna Troop, Diane Lemire, Jean-Pierre Doyon and Nancy Sutton.
Donna Troop and Diane Lemire will show their exceptional silks, wool and felt pieces of contemporary, wearable art in the form of wraps, scarves, vests, jackets, tunics, skirts and hats. The pieces are made with vibrant, hand-dyed fabrics. Several pieces integrate a variety of found objects. Each piece is unique.
Jean Pierre Doyon will present his distinctive leather bags and hats for men and women. Nancy Sutton’s bracelets, necklaces and earrings capture the warmth of mineral and the light of semi-precious stones.
This event illustrates the belief that art is not just something that you hang on the wall, but can be enjoyed all the time in many ways. The gallery is a collective of 10 artists who occupy the beautiful space above the restaurant Les Fougères, at 783 Route 105 in Chelsea.
