Wearable Art returns for 2013
The Port Moody Arts Centre Society has issued a call for entries for the 2013 Wearable Art Awards.
Next year’s event — which will help form part of Port Moody’s centennial celebrations — will include three form-based categories and seven unique award opportunities. Selected entries will be showcased in a performance Feb. 16 and 17, 2013, at the Galleria.
The event has “challenged artists of all mediums to push their imaginations to create evocative, imaginative and thought-provoking sculptures for the human body for over 10 years,” according a PMAC release. (The 2012 event was cancelled due to a drop in international entries, which PMAC said was due to high shipping costs.)
To mark the 2013 event’s significance to PoMo’s centennial, the colours will be silver and gold, with the fabric being silk.
Artists will also be challenged to use the concept of “100” in one category.
A total of $6,000 in prize money will be awarded.
The application deadline is Nov. 15, 2012. Visit www.wearableartawards.com for info.
