Eye of the Beholder: A Garment Exhibition

Friday, May 10, 2019 6 – 9 pm

160 S. Water
Batavia, IL 60510

Fashion designer and this year’s curator, Andrea Reynders shares, 
“Artists were challenged to clarify and translate what Transparency meant to them and to create a work that is either worn or observed. From garments that capture emotions we cannot readily share, moments that capture chrysalis transformation, to paintings that capture light in transparent layers of color, the work included here bridges the divide between poetic reflection and political comment and from dynamic movement to quietude. The results are both serious and whimsical—an amazing cross section of personal interpretation. From sophisticated couture and hand-crafted assemblages to paintings --all as a response to the idea of Transparency. Come and be transformed.”

This year’s garment exhibition features the following artists: Victoria Belz, Andria Burchett, Claudia Canon, Patricia Davoust, Morgan Donahue, Maureen Gasek, Sue and Katie Holzkopf, Lisa Holzl, Madeline Jenkins, Katherine Kratzer, Emy Krauspe, Ellen Jo Ljung, Anke Loh, Michele Norman, Gretchen Schreiber, Madelyn Schuster, Amanda Williams, Lisa Youngdahl, Dawn Zalkus, and Ana Zanic.
