PAPER FASHION GALA • MAY 3, 2019 • 6:00 p.m. - 10:00 p.m.
Self Help Graphics & Art (SHG) is celebrating 46 years of nurturing innovation and creativity in our printmaking community with a Paper Fashion Gala & Runway Show on Friday, May 3, 2019 from 6:00 p.m. - 10:00 p.m. at SHG, with Emcees Jovana Lara and Danny Romero of ABC7 Vista L.A. This year we are excited to revive our paper fashion runway show and to highlight art through new wearable paper fashion designs. Artists representative of SHG’s history, including legacy, mid-career and burgeoning artists will bring to life wearable paper fashions inspired by actual prints published by our network of artists from our Professional Printmaking Program spanning over four decades! This is a not-to-be-missed event. Tickets are on sale NOW. Get further information and buy tickets at www.selfhelpgraphics.com/paperfashiongala. See the video.
Paper Fashion Runway artists include Martha Carrillo, Carolyn Castaño, Mita Cuaron, Victoria Delgadillo, Consuelo Flores, Melissa Govea, Rafa Haro, Maria de Los Angeles, Teresa Miramontes, Armando Norte, Miguel Angel Reyes, Marissa Magdalena Sykes, Andi Xoch; with installations by Patssi Valdez and Philip Carreon.
