Saturday October 22nd at 12pm, please join us for a ‘fashion show’ of b(RE)ce garments at LABspace in Hillsdale, NY
Both eco-dyed b(RE)ce garments and works on paper will be on view.
The b(RE)ce series is made from selected repurposed garments (shirts, sweaters, blazers, dresses) dyed naturally from plants gathered from the land around my studio in Western Massachusetts. On summer mornings, I collect morning glories, rose leaves and coreopsis, for example, and in the fall harvest fallen leaves and barberry, and dry goldenrod and zinnias for winter use in dyeing. The colors and patterns imprinted on the garments were once found on the forest floor or on the stalks of plants. Each b(RE)ce garment is a unique, naturally dyed work.
