Huntington Arts Council is proud to present Wearable Art, Juried Exhibition, Juror Dominique Maciejka. The Opening Reception is Friday, August 24, 2018 from 6-8PM.The exhibit runs from the opening through September 15, 2018. This is a FREE event, all are welcome to attend.
“In this era, where the lines between fine art, fashion, craft and design are being erased, we are very excited to be providing a show of this caliber to the arts community. It is no coincidence that this exhibit is scheduled to run through the dates of New York Fashion Week, an internationally recognized event. The Huntington Arts Council believes art can be expressed in many ways, shapes and configurations. This show is a perfect example of the many forms the intersection of art and design can take.” Said Executive Director, Marc Courtade
By definition from Mirriam-Webster, “wearable” means “capable of being worn: suitable to be worn”. “Art” is defined more broadly as “skill acquired by experience, study, or observation”, “the conscious use of skill and creative imagination especially in the production of aesthetic objects”. This exhibit features a wide interpretation of the Wearable Art theme. Some pieces are clearly fashion based and wearable in a more traditional sense. Other work can be described as based on experiences, study or observation. All reflect exceptional, creative imagination and skill. This show features a diverse use of media including jewelry, textiles, clothing, archival digital photography, and 3D mixed media.

“There was such a great variety of submissions for this show! I chose pieces that I thought related best to the topic, were avant-garde and unique, or very traditional and exemplified a process well.” Said Dominique Maciejka
