SPONSORS ART EXHIBIT AT CAL STATE L.A.
Los Angeles, October 3, 1995 -- The California State University
presents Images: Art to Wear, an International
Textile and Apparel Association (ITAA) juried exhibition, from
October 16 to November 9, Monday through Thursday, from
12 noon to 5 p.m. Additional hours are scheduled for Friday, October
20, and Saturday, October 21, from 12 noon to 5 p.m. The premise
of the show is to provide a venue for the expressive side of textile
and apparel design and showcase this creativity. The public is
invited to an opening reception for the designers on Wednesday,
October 18, from 8 to 10 p.m.
The exhibition presents innovative compositions of palette, texture,
and structure to address issues of three-dimensional design for
the human form. As part of ITAA's annual meeting, entries were
solicited internationally from ITAA's network of fashion designers,
resulting in a show which consists of 35 creative and, at times,
nonfunctional designs from 27 different artists. The breadth of
the work ranges from woven plastics to a Bondage Wedding Dress
by Eulanda Sander and Wendy Weiss, offering an unconventional
perception of fashion design.
The Cal State L.A. Fine Arts Gallery is on the first floor of
the Fine Arts Building. The University is located five miles east
of the Los Angeles Civic Center at the interchange of the San
Bernardino (10) and Long Beach (710) freeways.
