Professor involved with ArtPrizeMalone University's visual arts professor, Claire Murray Adams, will be displaying her work in the international 2013 ArtPrize competition, which is open to any artist and is decided by a public voting process.
Her show, entitled Her Closet: Clothing as Metaphor, is an installation of dresses created by Adams and will be on display in the John Hartman Photography Studio, Grand Rapids, Mich. from September 18 - October 6.
The show includes 12 sheer organza dresses. The choice of fabric is a conscious effort to address the transparency of one's identity. The sheer fabric allows the viewer to see the way in which the garment has been constructed which demonstrates the process in sewing a swell as the process of living. The characteristics of each dress are universal...emotions anyone may have experienced from time to time.
