SDA-NP Members in the 9th Annual Port Townsend Wearable Art Show
SDA-NP members Pat Herkal, Cheri Kopp, Donna Lark-Weiner and Joyce Wilkerson were juried into the Port Townsend 9th Annual Wearable Art Show May 11.
Pat and Donna collaborated on a nuno felted vest-coat inspired by Van Gogh’s painting Starry Night Over the Rhône. He described the painting as “glittering stars and wavy reflections of the water beneath the sparkling tranquility of the natural lights of the heavens.”
Cheri Kopp’s Orange You a Cutie was entered in the Adult Wearable Art category. Using plastic fruit packaging, berry boxes, scrap paper, foam dish packs and other recycled materials she created a skirt, bustier, hat, shoes and jewelry, creating a fanciful, cheerful ensemble.
Joyce Wilkerson’s fashion dress was designed using her custom woven fabric. A sophisticated dress with faux jacket can be worn for work or any dressy occasion.
