threads wearable art fashion show is finished.

but the photos are pouring in! hooray!

and here are a bunch of linkies the show is mentioned on, some with snip snaps (photos).

it was a great day! so many people showed up that it was standing room only, and then people had to be turned away. they hung out in the museum but could not get into the show. i think our (james, amanda, and i) project: the piece and the presentation that day went off without a hitch. i am really happy with the outcome of our group project. working in a group is not that easy. the 3 of us all have strong opinions because we are all artists. we ended up finding our group and just kind of doing what we do best, amanda (aka mandible) said it to me really well, but i am so exhausted that i cannot recall it very well. she did a lot of detail oriented work and the big push @the end and the day of show (and rehearsals too) and i kinda pushed the project along and worked on it everyday. james made all the crystals and was very helpful with constant feedback and ideas and also did a lot of the writing for the project. he also published a book of homemade crystal picks, http://www.blurb.com/bookstore/detail/159029

September 21st – October 20th 2007
Artist reception, Friday September 28th 7-9pm
Gallery hours 2-6pm – Fridays & Saturdays
Jersey City Artist Studio Tour October 6th & 7th 12-6pm

Inside – Outside joins in the 17th Annual Jersey City Artist Studio Tour (JCAST), bringing together art by local artists in two group exhibitions. The collaborative exhibitions highlight the work of twenty-eight artists and will serve to promote local emerging talent as well as raise awareness and advocacy of artists’ issues. Inside will feature work by: Aileen Bassis, Sherrard Bostwick, Jennifer Carpenter, Mary Jeys, Geraldine Juarez, Meg Klim, Vaneska (Kika) Kluck, Radical Performance Group (Sabrina Asch, Kristi Hall, Sofie Holten, Lauren Larken, Joanna Rose White), Kayt Hester Lent, Beth Morrison, Franc Palaia, Mike Schuwerk and Cristina Gil Donaire, Rachael Serbinski, Ev Stone, Chris Sugrue, Amanda Thackray, Stephanie Tichenor, Stephanie Werthman. Outside will feature work by: Nyugen Smith, Geraldine Juarez, Michele Loughlin, Ryan Higgins, and D.C. Smith. And with special performances by Cyphered Threads and Gocha Tsinadze on Friday, September 28th. Inside is curat
ed by Doris Caçoilo and Amie Figueiredo and Outside is curated by Asha Ganpat and Brian Gustafson and hosted by Waldo Lofts.

The month-long exhibition begins Friday, September 21st and runs through Saturday, October 20th; with an artist reception on Friday, September 28th 7-9pm, at 159 Second Street, in downtown Jersey City. The exhibition is part of the Jersey City Artist Studio Tour (October 6th & 7th) presented by Pro Arts and Jersey City Cultural Affairs. Each year hundreds of studios and supportive venues open their doors and artists display their work in various public venues with many events and live performances. The two-day event, which is free and open to the public, receives thousands of visitors. Inside – Outside will feature a diverse group of artists exhibiting painting, photography, sculpture, video, textiles, performance and more.

The multi-media exhibition at Waldo Lofts looks to explore how the notions of outside and inside can be interpreted in a multitude of social, aesthetic, political, personal, and economic dimensions. Bringing together a diverse number of artists from different backgrounds and artistic practices, the exhibitions look to examine the ways in which the threshold between ‘In’ and ‘Out’ can be employed as a means of identification, a divisive barrier, or a conceptual model. These explorations of space include examining the interior and exterior of home, the body, domestic, shared, private and public spaces as they relate to singular and common identities. Works in the exhibition will include a multitude of creative practices, including works that are interactive, site-specific, and appeal to multiple sensory experiences. The hope with this event is to support the artist community and Jersey City as well as encourage local artists by giving them a much-needed local venue to promo
te themselves and their work.

Inside – Outside is being sponsored by Pro-Arts, a non-profit organization of professional artists dedicated to promoting the visual arts and communicating Jersey City’s identity as a growing arts center; by The City of Jersey City, Mayor Jerramiah T. Healy, The Jersey City Municipal Council, The Jersey City Department of Health & Human Services, Division of Cultural Affairs; and by the Fields Development Group.
