Art Talk on the Art Walk: Organizer, Cherry Bibler, will give an overview of the Olympic Peninsula Wearable Art Show planned for August 1, 2020 at the Sequim Boys and Girls Club. This will be a gala fashion show featuring original designs created by talented artists, seamstresses, or fashionistas. The show will celebrate creativity, encourage recycling, support youth interest and include entries from a variety of niches. Having a long background in sewing as a hobby, Cherry immediately became interested in participating as an artist in the show. She convinced two of her sisters to team up and create their first entry in the 2017 show, Aluminations. Their piece took Best in Show! The resulting bonding and creative fulfillment was powerful and spurred the team on to another entry called Trashy is Classy in 2018.
Cherry and a small but powerful volunteer group are now spearheading the debut of an Olympic Peninsula Wearable Art Show to benefit the Boys and Girls Club.
