Wearable Art, which is also known as “Artwear” or “art to wear”, refers to individually designed pieces of (usually) handmade clothing, accessories and jewelry created as fine or expressive art.  Artists are encouraged to remember saleable sizes.

Textile/Surface Design refers to the art of changing the appearance of natural and synthetic  surfaces by the application of traditional, stylized, digitized, and illusionary techniques to embellish a product.  It is also the art of enhancing a surface’s structure by applying 3 dimensional techniques, such as weaving, knitting, embroidery, lace, burnout, beading, embroidery and embossing.

• Artisan designed Wearable Art may be entered as single pieces or as ensembles which could include (but are not limited to) the following:

Dresses, slacks, body suits, coats, robes, jackets, kimono, tops, pants, bags, footwear, accessories, and headwear

• Artisan designed textiles using unique surface design will be entered as individual pieces which are described as:

Wall hangings, throws, pillows, and art quilts and tapestries
