Gallery 1448 presents: Re-Design A show of couture fashions crafted from unconventional and reclaimed materials by Howard Community College students.

June 5 – June 21, 2009

OPENING RECEPTION: Friday, June 5, 6 – 8 pm

Regular Hours: Sat / Sun 1-5 pm or by appointment

Re-Design features wearable art crafted by students from Howard Community College who were enrolled in a 3-D Basic Design Class. These students included Art Majors as well as students majoring in many other fields. The class was instructed to use materials not intended for clothing and to create a one of a kind couture fashion. Each outfit was to be designed for a particular event/occasion either real or invented.

The students responded by employing such diverse things as coffee filters, cassette tapes, Capri Sun juice boxes, weed preventive cloth, feathers, string and wire to construct their fanciful and inventive attire. Imagine a traditional wedding dress made of coffee filters or a dress to celebrate the first day of Spring assembled from tissue paper flowers and paper plates. The challenge was not only to invent a distinctive garment, but also how to engineer its production and make it wearable.

Come and enjoy the eccentric and imaginative results and meet the artists and their instructor, Christina McCleary at the Opening Reception for Re-Design on Friday, June 5 from 6-8 pm.
