In a delightful mix of artfulness and humor, galerie 103 presents invited Kaua`i, Oahu and international talent who will join their creative forces for this unique art + fashion multi-media event during the Art of Fashion Art Walk at The Shops at Kukui’ula on May10th.
On the runway, look for bucketfuls of bottle-caps, hundreds of teabags, cardboard, paper, magazines, bicycle tires, rope, bubble-wrap, plastic bottles, vinyl, and much, much more.
The creative team of artists and models includes: Chris Atkinson, Rhonda Ballard, Doug Britt, Kaplan Bunce, Anita Cook,Tommy Cook, Kathy Cowan, Anna Desmaris, Margaret Ezekiel, Julie Fisher, Helen Friend, Kelly Hunt, Marni Kaduce, Karen Gally, Christy Harris, Michelle Heri,Talia Irene, Louda Larrain, Sequoia Leech-Krichman, Nani Leininger, Crystal Lober, Robert Lober, Elliot Lucas, Deyana Mielke, Craig Palmer, Lauren Pingree, Wayne Zebzda.
This fashionable evening will also feature award-winning Vancouver artist and eco-fashion designer Katherine Soucie. Soucie transforms waste textiles by incorporating traditional artisanal techniques, remix mending and handcraft applications with digital technologies derived from her formal training in fashion, textiles and printmaking.
The reincarnated products serve as a reminder of what is often left behind.
Runway meets roadway in a multi-media presentation by Kaua`i artist Wayne Zebzda titled: Suits, lies and videotape, an evolving group of short films, altered discarded suits, and everything else Zebzda comes across in his roadside wanderings as he continues his never-ending dialogue with the road and with life.
PowerHound, the Kaua`i-based group formed in 2005, with the mission of playing music differently, will improvise with ART reFASHIONED and additionally will create a sonic landscape for the evening. Their electrosonic art form is a more conceptually built music, eschewing the confines of melody in order to deliver made-to-order tonality. What does that mean? It means they play whatever the hell they want to. PowerHound features Tony LeHoven, guitar and controllers, and Eddie Sitzler, drums and percussion.
