An exhibition of costumes by Melissa Webb

August 14 – September 12, 2009
Opening Reception: August 14, 7-10pm

For four weeks Gallery Imperato will be transformed into a mystical dreamland, a haunted forest, a magical storybook, a warehouse of the imagination. Elaborate hand-made costumes by fiber artist Melissa Webb will be on display from August 14 through September 12, 2009. A selection of related photographs by Uli Loskot, Lisa Dietrich, and aminibigcircus will accompany the wears.

Please join us at the opening reception on Friday, August 14th from 7-10pm. Guests can expect to be served by garden gnomes and mingle among hi-society stilt walkers!

(Gnomes and “Uppity Ladies” are a collaboration with M. Jane Taylor and company.)
