Ocean Shores Wearable Art Show Is Looking for Artists!

The Ocean Shores Wearable Art Show is gearing up for their eighth crazy runway show! Artists are busy working on their creations and set designs are being planned. While I’m a bit biased, I think this show has become a local favorite among the many great events happening in Ocean Shores.

Show producers, Eric Bjella and Tricia Funk, have always intended that the show, once it proved its value, be used as a fundraiser to benefit a local non-profit willing to take on the production responsibilities. Stage West Community Theatre (SWCT) has been a non-profit community theatre producing plays in Ocean Shores for nearly 10 years.

The theme for the 2019 Show is: “Hidden Meaning” and artists are encouraged but not required to create pieces along this theme. Artists of all media are invited to create ensembles of functional and not so functional pieces of “clothing” and accessories to be presented in a one-of-a-kind runway fashion show held at the Ocean Shores Convention Center on June 1.

This is a runway extravaganza with something to pique your creative interests. The show is rated PG-13 and well-behaved children accompanied by an adult are welcome. There will be a no-host bar available. Doors open at 6:30pm and show starts at 7:30pm. Tickets will go on sale May 1 and will be available online at the Stage West Community Theatre website or at The Dusty Trunk store in Ocean Shores.
