Illustration & Fashion (2017)
April 28 – June 9, 2017

Exhibition Dates: April 28 – June 9, 2017
Gallery Hours: Wednesday – Saturday, 10 AM – 4 PM

Guest Juror: Bil Donovan, Fashion Illustrator and Educator

Whether the subject is a toaster, a teapot, a tuxedo, or a trench coat, for this show, line and flair are the most valued skills. (Lighting too if the entry is a photograph.) Admittedly a little commercial – remember, it’s how Andy got his start. The subject needn’t be the artist’s creation, but the execution needs to be solidly the artist’s style.

Reception: Friday, April 28, 2017, 5-7 PM
Meet the Artists! Refreshments served. Open to the public.
At the reception, models from shops of Tanger Outlets in Riverhead including Chico’s, Saks Fifth Avenue OFF 5TH and NYDJ, among others, will be showcasing wears from their new spring collections. In addition, student model Emily Blumenthal will be modeling unique Salvation Army fashions – complete outfit for under $12! – and student model Maddy Seitles will be modeling a recycled fashion dress designed and created by East End Arts Education Director Diane Giardi. With the theme of Illustration & Fashion, all attendees are invited to dress as outrageously as they dare!
