The Wearable Art Market Forums

And even worse, Brady’s Clavis Calendarium, 1813 described them as: an evil time "when the seas boiled, wine turned sour, dogs grew mad, and all creatures became languid, causing to man burning fevers, hysterics, and phrensies"
Holy cow - luckily we now have air conditioning and time for Sunday afternoon naps and no need for sacrificing a poor little brown doggie!!
So, how do YOU spend those 'Dog Days' of mid-Summer? For me, it's a time to pause and reflect before the rush of energy that accompanies the crisp coolness of Fall and the busy holiday season that follows on its heels.
This little summer pause always gets the creative juices flowing for me - how about you? Any new pieces to share, or plans for new fall inventory? New ideas for getting a jump start for getting ready for the busy season? Thinking up some new advertising ideas? Maybe a little shopping spree? Join the artists of the Wearable Art Market tomorrow night for our Sunday Night at the Market get-together. The party starts in this forum thread:
Come and share your 'Dog Days' with us, starting at 7PM Eastern, 6PM Central, 5PM Mountain, 4PM Pacific. See you there!

The artists at the Wearable Art Market have been busy!
Saturday, May 2, 2009
The thread will be in the Wearable Art Market public forum-- http://www.1000markets.com/forums/23
The "Wearable Art Market" is eager to break down the walls between buyer & seller...opening the doors of discussion that will help everyone to understand a little more about our varied crafts and the inspiration behind it...even the day-to-day mondain tasks needed to be done to follow our passion.
With that in mind, the artists of the Wearable Art Market will be getting together Sunday evening and we'd love to have you join us!
Art will be the subject of course-- inspiration, latest ambitions, recent successes-- or works in progress-- BUT i recently watched an old video of "A Chorus Line"...and the question that came up, "what i did for love"...corny i know BUT i would like to ask a variation of that question--"what is the most silly or humiliating thing you've done for art? ...think about it & bring it to the forum!
I suggest you pop some popcorn, or maybe some salsa & chips, beverage of your choice, barefeet or "bunny" slippers a must, and maybe a pillow for your bum...we're in for the long haul.

From the artist herself:
"I am a conceptual artist and I see the world in color.
Influenced by technology, haute couture, hardware stores and the monsters living underneath my bed, curiosity drives much of my work. I believe imagination is a superpower we all possess, and encourage stepping out of grown up life for a moment to recall a child's eager fascination with even the most mundane. Flying machines, shiny things, antique maps and world's fairs delight me and I possess a rather unhealthy addiction to Eggs Benedict.
I am currently interested in exploring our diminishing relationship with nature as we become more reliant on technology. The projects I have brewing now deal with translating the idealized concept of cyberspace into physical, tangible form. I received a BA in Art History from UCLA, and live, work and scheme in downtown Los Angeles.
The dress will be on display at the Brewery Artwalk April 18 & 19 in downtown Los Angeles."

|Contemporary mixed media art jewelry|
Sharon MacLeod's work is strong, vibrant and heavily ethnic. She works with an unlikely combination of materials. The bracelets start with her own graphic art that is printed on thin paper, which is then meticulously laminated to various sizes of small tubing, and then assembled with a variety of materials including polymer clay, glass, metal, rubber and plastic.
If you are not familiar with Claire Prebble .... you should be. She is an 18 year old that has been creating Wearable Art entries for the ten years!! Her work is breath-taking and awe inspiring... a must see for any that find the world of Wearable Art inspiring.

Hellena Post makes her home in Australian and describes herself as "...a big strapping hippy, spinster and creatrix, tripping my way down the fibre fall fantastic". She creates hand spun, handcrafted mostly crocheted, wearable art, wearable art sculptures, and felted creatures. Her wearable art is wildly beautiful.
