Does fashion illustration get the respect it deserves? It is such a diverse art that elevates another craft, fashion design. This Thursday, the Gallery Hanahou opens their exhibit, Fashion Illustration: Visual Poetry.
The exhibit is a collaboration of 13 contemporary fashion illustrators and is curated by renowned artist and educator, Bil Donovan. Donovan's work has a fluid, watercolor look. Laura Laine's work plays with scale and illustrates with fine lines. Samantha Hahn favors a whimsical candy-colored palette. Tobie Giddio, with a few simple slashes is able to convey glamor and drama. Other artists include Carlos Aponte, Cecilia Carlstedt, Daniel Egneus, Eveline Tarunadjaja, Jeffrey Fulvimari, John Jay Cabuay, Sarah Singh. Stina Persson and Tina Berning.
The exhibit opens with a reception on Thursday, January 20, 2011 and runs through February 25, 2011.
