"Wearable art at IRT
Costume designer Catherine Fritsch has turned her 2005 Creative Renewal Fellowship into a fashion show and wearable art market to be held on Aug. 18 at 7 p.m. in the Indiana Repertory Theatre’s Grand Lobby.
The event will showcase local jewelry, weaving, silk painting, knitting and found object fashion, including garments Fritsch designed and created as part of her grant. Artists featured in the show will have items for sale at the reception following the fashion show. A sampling of garments and accessories will be auctioned to benefit the IRT.
Among the artists participating in the show are Linda Deam, Sylvia Gray, Mary Jane Matranga, Ellen Nylen, Suzanne Shelton, Miriam Taylor and Imami Workshop’s Barbara Zech.
The event is open to the public; there is no door charge, but donations to the IRT, 140 W. Washington St., are welcome. Visit http://fashion.insideleg.com for more information.
