Arts Union and Danielle Festa Present: Who Are You Wearing? An Outdoor Exhibition of Street Fashion Paintings



Arts Union and Danielle Festa Present:
Who Are You Wearing? An Outdoor Exhibition of Street Fashion Paintings
RECEPTION:
October 12, 2013 from 2PM – 5PM
Union Square Plaza, Somerville, MA

On Saturday, October 12, come Union Square for an outdoor art exhibition.  Somerville Arts Council Grant recipient, Danielle Festa, will be displaying original mixed media oil paintings that capture an array of street fashion. Her newest works will include subjects from her red carpet photo shoot that took place in Union Square back in May.
Festa usually takes photo references for her paintings from unsuspecting passers by. This time she took a different approach, setting the scene for a photoshoot  in which anyone could participate. Her paintings focus on the influence of attire, so she was looking for a true sampling of the variety Union Square fashion has to offer.
The contradiction of everyday people posing on what is normally reserved for the fashion elite is part of what draws Festa to the red carpet scenario. You can expect the elements of the red carpet along with fabrics relating back to the fashion of her subject to be integrated into her oil paintings.
The exhibition will be held from 2 PM to 5PM in the Union Square Plaza. In addition to the artwork on display, there will be hor generously donated by Cantina La Mexicana and Sweet Ginger
This program is supported in part by a grant from the Somerville Arts Council, a local agency supported by the Massachusetts Cultural Council.
