Join me for opening night at the Koehnline Museum of Art, Oakton Community College on Thursday, October 3, 2019 from 5-8pm. My artwork named ‘Rules for Dating’ will be exhibited in the show called Fashioning the Self: You Are What You Wear?
Fashion has many definitions. As a noun, it represents the role of clothing art style, beauty and adornment and the identity and expression of the physical body. What we wear can be used as a vehicle to provide, embellish, speak or conform. Women have always struggled to fashion a life for themselves that feels authentic, but we come across barriers and restrictions that either society sets for us or we’ve set for ourselves.
This exhibit will show examples of how we’ve broken free and how we have not through fashion.
