RSVP for Free Entry to the Intergalactic Fashion Exhibition
On Friday August 18th, The Gown Gallery will open their doors to their newly renovated 7 East Event space for an Intergalactic Fashion Exhibition of Design and Photography.
Curated by Garment Manufacturer Laura Treas, 12 fashion designers will present their original garments, jewelry, and accessories in a live model exhibition open to the public. Underwater photographs by Mark Allen will also be on display.
This unprecedented event is a unique twist on a fashion show, ditching the runway for a more up-close-and-personal viewing experience. Wine and special plates by Affäre will also be available in their ivy-shaded courtyard.
Mural artists will also be live-painting the East-facing exterior wall during the event, commissioned by Botwin Commercial Development. A live musical performance will accompany the artist and viewers to cap off the evening.
SOLANOIR is a collection of events hosted in the Crossroads Arts District of Kansas City in preparation for the Great American Solar Eclipse cutting across on August 21st. Mural artists will be traveling from around the country and the world to transform the Crossroads into the Next Great American Art Hub. Other art exhibitions, performances, musical acts, and events are listed on their website: SOLANOIR.COM and Instagram @solanoir

This will be Kat Moss's first exhibition of her art, which features contour and blind contour portraits of friends, self-portraits, and photographs through the lens of a model, actress, and artist. She is inspired by Jenny Holzer for her feminism, poetry, and aesthetics.
Mark Allen will present his latest work from 2017, featuring large scale paintings, underwater photographs, portraits, and other art from his personal vault. Much of his recent work from the past few years has featured Kat Moss, as his muse and creative collaborator.
A scene from their debut short film , "Alice Through the Shattered Glass" featuring Kat Moss and co-directed by Morgan Cooper (Cooper Films) and Mark Allen will also be on display.
"THE CONSTITUTIONAL" is a performance art piece by Shea Gordon that involves numerical systems of interpretation, dance, and music at the Gold Standard Gallery in the Crossroads Arts District of Kansas City.
Turning the words from The Constitution of the United States into numbers, Shea Gordon created a musical score with a composer from the UMKC conservatory. With dancers following Shea throughout the gallery, they interpret the percussion and mechanization of the wording, offering a physical, visual, and musical interpretation of the founding document of American Democracy.
