RSVP for Free Entry on August 18
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 Affäire 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
