Wearable Art Extravaganza

Imagination on parade: Scenes from the fourth annual Juneau Arts and Humanities Council Wearable Art Extravaganza

Posted: Sunday, February 22, 2004

Rampaging Imagination" was the theme of the fourth-annual Wearable Art Extravaganza, held Friday night at ANB Hall.

The event is a fund-raiser for the Juneau Arts and Humanities Council, and proceeds benefit the group's scholarship and grant programs.

Forty-four entries paraded down the runway at Friday's show. "Another Gown From Wood Lying Around," a wooden creation designed by David Walker and modeled by Dawn Pisel-Davis, won top honors.

Enjoying the show:

Tom Carson helps Mary Bardone into her own creation "Juneau Burka," which she made and modeled using an old tarp, duct tape and bungie cords. A pair of brown rubber boots finished off the ensemble.

First place:

Model Dawn Pisel-Davis parades on stage in "Another Gown From Wood Lying Around," designed by David Walker. Walker won first place for the piece, made entirely of wood.

Silhouette:

Sara Lawson strikes a pose backstage before walking the runway Friday at the fourth annual Wearable Art Extravaganza at ANB Hall. Lawson traveled from Ketchikan with a dress made of Chinese take-out boxes and brass paper fasteners spray-painted with copper paint.

Mermaid members of "King Neptune and His Court" Magdelena Perry and her daughter Sophia, 2, look at some balloons that were part of their costumes at Friday's Wearable Art Extravaganza at ANB Hall.

Anastasia Fatiy makes her way down the runway modeling "American Woman," a piece made by Tess Staton, Ashley Maki and Sandra Walker using recycled pop cans, chainmail and wire.

Hal Geiger holds up a cola can - a nod to the entry on stage - and Carl Dierking watches as Anastasia Fatiy models "American Woman."
