Dress by Judy Bales
Modeled by Mikaila Maidment
MAY SHOW - FASHION & CREATIVITY CONTINUE
WITH NEW ADDITIONSNew feature:
The remarkable dresses of Charlotte Forbes. These dresses are art pieces, made to hang on the wall and not be worn. They are utterly fascinating—three styles made entirely of used teabags, with their gorgeous gradations of tea-color (tea itself removed). These dresses are poetic and romantic and offbeat. Another dress is made completely of crumpled paper towels that were used as paint rags. It's quite beautiful. Charlotte lives in New York but visits Fairfield regularly.
Continuing are the fashion-inspired mixed media works by Olaya Veras with their brightly colored inventive designs and the incredible costumes created by Judy Bales from the most unlikely materials.
Genevra Daley Bell has also added some more new Spring animals—charming ink and watercolor illustrations that are well-loved.
Art Walk night, Friday, May 3, also includes a studio activity of ongoing , ever-changing tabletop installations. Everyone can participate in these transitory works of art.
