Thanks to everyone who came to see the “green” fashion show and joined us for bubbly, delicious food, and fabulous performances by Wueping and the fashion show featuring the eco-fashion designs of international fashion designer Isagus Tausch.
Tausch’s clothing art is constructed from things that are unwanted or deemed no longer useful. Isagus’ choice of fashionable dresses as her canvas subverts this consumerist culture. Check out the fabulous pictures from the fashion show.
Pink is a joyful multimedia and interactive installation that aims to bring light into winter, the outdoors indoor and joy through the encounter with a riot of pink cherry blossoms.
Pink opened on Dec 2nd 2016 in the 2500 square foot Kaplan Gallery at Visarts in Rockville, Maryland. The show will run through January 15th 2017.
Liliane Blom, digital painter and installation artist is hard at work on the “Pink” installation and has for the last 3 years been climbing trees in the College Gardens neighbourhood of Rockville Maryland to create time lapse pieces of the Kwanzan cherry blossoms from buds to blossoms all the way to their final glory as swirling, whirling pink petals of earthly delight. She has also been roaming the streets to catch the blooms at different times of day and has a special love for the petals swirling along the street leaving fairy tale trails of pink longing behind them.
The Installation is composed of 100 feet of billowing hand painted silk; an interactive cherry blossom “cocoon” where art lovers can play among swirling tissue paper flowers while enjoying a virtual coy pond; large scale digital paintings and a video projections.
