Wearable Arts 2018 a success

Thank you artists, volunteers and audience members. There were two sold-out shows. Wearable Arts was a spectacular runway show at Land’s End that wrapped up Bunnell and the Homer Fiber Arts Collective’s 2017 programming that included sewing skill-shares, an inspirational residency with Anchorage artist Sheila Wyne, open studios and collaborative sculpture and fiber workshops. This year’s Wearable Arts creations included 61 ensembles by 30 artists. A special thank you to the event sponsors and the additional support that made this the best Wearable Arts yet.
