The Allegany Arts Council is pleased to announce A Stitch to Wear: Wearable Art Competition & Exhibition, December 7-28, 2019!

This juried competition will focus on art as attire, and will include anything that can be worn, including jewelry. Artists will submit a body of work and will be invited to participate, possibly including multiple pieces.

About the Juror

Renate Maile-Moskowitz, of Smithsonian Associates, will serve as juror for the exhibition, and brings a wealth of textile experience in felt-making, silk and sericulture production, plant dyeing, lace and paper-making. Although a Fulbright Scholarship in Dance brought her originally to the U.S., doors opened to her interests in textiles and costuming with the Washington National Opera.

Today, Maile-Moskowitz combines her love of fabrics and textiles with her equal passions for folklore, teaching, research, theater, storytelling and dance. She often works with schools, theaters, curators, and conservators to develop their ideas for presentation on stage, in the classroom, or for display.
