Pictures from the ArtaWEARness XI shoot! The photographer, Alexsis, did an awesome job!
This series of garments was made from fabric which I hand-dyed with rust and various natural dyes. This work explores repetition and accumulation, growth and decay.

ArtaWEARness XI was a great success! This year’s coordinator, Katie Kimber, did an excellent job of putting together a fantastic show, and each of the 15 artists and their performers did great on the runway! It was lots of fun, and I had a great time with my two lovely models, Britny and Dana. Now that it’s done and a week behind me, life is beginning to return to normal, although I feel like I am suffering from post-ArtaWEARness syndrome. Sleep has never felt so good, and I’m having to force myself into the studio to catch up on everything that had been put on hold.
Yesterday Gil Tucker from Global TV was at ACAD to interview a few of the artists from ArtaWEARness XI. Check out the video here!
ArtaWEARness XI is less than a week away! Tickets are now on sale in the ACADSA office or down at the Eleven:Eleven Boutique in Kensington. Also, check out the sneak-peek show on at the Resolution Gallery, and the silent auction fundraiser in the Marion Nicoll Gallery.
Only one month until ArtaWEARness XI!
