When designing a costume, what elements are considered? The Massachusetts Academy of Ballet presents a fashion show demonstrating the collaboration of costume design and the art of ballet. The designer's artistry of shape, form, and flow merge with the dancer's artistry of movement, expression, and line. Design by Arlene Kowal, narration by Charles Flachs, and performance by students of the Massachusetts Academy of Ballet Educational Training Association.
The fashion show will be run at 6:15pm, 6:45pm, and 7:15pm.
ON OUR WALLS: Artwork by Westhampton-based artist David Poppie. His recent work involves the reclaiming of disposable objects in mass to create two- and three-dimensional works. Pieces can involve tea bags, matchbook strikes, plastic cutlery, etc. These items are generally disregarded and ignored by the everyday person. Through the gathering of the discards of contemporary culture, he asks the viewer to reconsider the function and value of these objects. He also reassigns their value by re-contextualizing them by creating a piece of art from them.
