"Call for Artists: Uncommon Thread Wearable Art Show"
2007-07-23 until 2007-09-17
Baton Rouge Gallery
Baton Rouge, LA, USA United States of America

Culturecandy.org and Baton Rouge Gallery have teamed up to support the capital city's latest effort to stimulate and engage the artistic mass with the Uncommon Thread Wearable Art Show. By merging fashion design and visual art, this juried regional competition encourages entries from all disciplines, supports collaboration and provides a unique and accessible arena for artists to display their talent. Uncommon Thread is a chance to use the fusion between fine art and fashion as way to boldly demonstrate one's artistry for a broad audience.

Juried by Louisiana's own Suzanne Perron, formally of Vera Wang, the competition awards sound craftsmanship, but focuses on innovative design, dramatic detail and use of alternative materials in the creation of a full-bodied piece of art. Those placed in first, second and third will receive cash prizes. All accepted entries will be presented in a stage performance choreographed by the Cangelosi Dance Project.

To be held October 12, 2007, 8 p.m. at David Cano's workshop 521 N. 19th Street, the exhibition promises to be a one-of-a-kind event. Music provided by a collaboration between DJ Gabriel Saint and a string quartet led by violinist Joanna Steinhauser will take the theme of fusion even further.

Though this event is facilitated locally by the wealth of talent stirring in Baton Rouge, the call for entry is not limited to Louisiana or the southeast. Uncommon Thread is eager to connect artists from across the country.

Entrants are encouraged to visit the website to learn more about wearable art, our supporters and how to hem themselves into this Uncommon Thread.

Submission deadline for digital images is September 17, 5 p.m. to be sent to uncommon.thread.br@gmail.com or mailed to Baton Rouge Gallery, Attn: Uncommon Thread,  1442 City Park Avenue, Baton Rouge, LA 70808. For entry forms visit www.uncommonthreadbr.com.
