Elkland Art Center is pairing local businesses with designers to create wearable art out of trash!
Appalachian State University students, headed up by fashion coordinator, Kate Webb, are putting together another fabulous runway show. Students take landfill-bound material from local sponsoring businesses and organizations and make outrageous wearable art. Hospitality House board member, Georgia Bowen, will MC and will be wearing Trash Fashion representing Hospitality House. Hospitality House, a non-profit crisis agency, serves seven counties (Alleghany, Ashe, Avery, Mitchell, Watauga, Wilkes, Yancey) in northwestern North Carolina helping those living in crisis, poverty and homelessness rebuild their lives by providing food, shelter, and supportive services. Hospitality House is a place to get a hand up, not a hand out. You don't want to miss this!
A special bonus this year, members of the Watauga County Library Teen FANDOM Club will be making and presenting their own fashions.
We will have 2D work of art displayed for the month of April at Bald Guy King Street, made possible by: Dr Mark Murrey, Carrington Pertalion, Espresso News, SOS Printing, Capones, and Local Lion.
We are also accepting items for silent auction. Please contact Lexie if interested.
Please support these generous lovers of community art!
