Wearable art at spring galaFARGO – Leather works by artist Stevie Famulari will be featured in the fashion show at the Spring Gala and the Plains Art Museum May 4.
Famulari’s “Fortune Favours” series are leather works that use intimate body contact, body impressions, body energies and body gestures to create wearable artwork. Additional elements such as words in braille and other details are added for inspiration.
The leather art is described as “wearable energy signatures that use the art of human connections to share moments of one’s life in fashions.”
The pieces in this limited series are custom fitted and details of the design are created with the dialogues of people involved.
Famulari’s practice focuses on creating spaces for living experiences. Her work in the arts includes landscape architecture, fashion and food arts.
Famulari has competed in Food Network Challenges and she is a professor in the landscape architecture department at North Dakota State University.
