Art Crawl: vintage clothes, photos & music, Fri Feb 11
Friday February 11 from 7 pm to midnight, James North Art Crawl at Artword Artbar.
Gallery: Andrea Liss *The Art of the Dress* is a vintage clothing installation of Canadian, American and European fashions, on exhibit (and for sale) at Artword Gallery, in February. Curated by vintage clothing collector Andrea Liss, the installation is inspired by the smoky romance of the femme fatale. Both high fashion and department store party dresses from the 1950s to 1980s will be styled exclusively to give you inspiration for Valentine’s Day. Hours with curator present: Fri Feb 11 (James North Art Crawl) from 7 to 10 pm, Sat Feb 12 from 2 to 6 pm.
Mark Korczysnki creates everyday objects and ornamental items out of forged metal. He is an artist blacksmith trained in the traditional method working out of his Sherman Street North studio, “metalmorphosis”. His exhibit features 10 art pieces — photographs with hand forged frames and hand cut mats.
Music in the bar: Wade Whittaker, solo classical guitar. And later, Tim Ninehouse, jazz piano.
