One of the most special things about 1000 Markets is the way the format encourages everyone to get to know the people behind the art!
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-- general levels of creativity, chocolate addictions-- Who knows what else and where it will lead? Join us and find out!
The thread will be in the Wearable Art Market public forum--
"Wearable art, also known as Artwear or "art to wear", refers to individually designed pieces of (usually) hand-made clothing or jewelry created as fine or expressive art. While the making of any article of clothing or other wearable object typically involves aesthetic considerations, the term wearable art implies that the work is intended to be accepted as a serious and unique artistic creation or statement. Pieces may be sold and/or exhibited." (from http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wearable_art")
I consider myself a designer of wearable art and my love for the category is across the board. Most of my creations are done with fiber and my preference is Art For Your Head. My work now resides all over the world. A portfolio of some of my work can be seen here: DreamWoven
I wanted to put together a blog to showcase artisans that I admire and like watching.
