Juror's Talk: "Seasons of the Smokies" 2022 Wearable Art Exhibit


Poised at the junction of art, craft and fashion, artwear has both challenged and blurred cultural boundaries as works of art made to adorn the body. Take a virtual walk through the wearable art exhibit with Juror Dianne Totten as she discusses the impact that color, design, fabric and construction have in creating designer show pieces. Produced by the Handweavers Guild of America, Inc. (HGA), the Seasons of the Smokies exhibit and juror's talk took place at the 2022 Convergence® conference held July 2022 in Knoxville, Tennessee.
