About this Event

Drop your finest surplus bad art to the Deer Lake Art Gallery by September 13th @ 4 pm. 2D work will be accepted only.

The ReVision Trash Fashion Show at the Deer Lake Gallery will be held on Saturday, Oct. 26 from 7 to 9 pm! Make and show a stunning costume to highlight the need for recycling waste materials.

There are two categories which participants may choose to partake in. The first category is the recycled and reused non-clothing material. Fashions must be made from at least 85% recyclable or reused materials that would otherwise be thrown away. The second category is old and thrifted clothing reimagined. The repurposed clothing must be completely altered and reimagined. This category is designed to bring attention to detrimental consequences on the environment that fast fashion has. 80% percent of used clothing get sent abroad to be resold or dumped, cut down as rags, reprocessed or ends up in landfills.[1] This has been exacerbated global environmental issues. It not only suppresses the textile industries in many countries, but also fills up their landfills.[2]

Please join us for the Bad Art Show and Trash Fashion Show on Saturday, October 26, 2019 from 7 to 9 pm!
