Wearable Art Show Returns for 8th Year

The artists and organizers of the Door County Wearable Art Show will transform the Sister Bay Village Hall into a showroom and boutique full of local and regional made clothing, accessories and jewelry on Aug. 18-19.

Returning is jeweler Amy Taylor, whose silver and gold pieces are constructed with an emphasis on hinge work, gemstone color juxtapositions, and found objects. Ilze Heider brings her leather bags, each featuring distinctive details that bridge elegance with bold design. Pat Rued makes hand painted and printed fibers, a vibrant array of color and pattern in tailored jackets, tops and scarves. Sue Donohoo’s line of jackets and scarves excites the senses with color and pattern.

Ann Gainey specializes in jackets and tops made of wool, silk and cotton. Deb Rades displays her chainmail and beaded bags and pouches.

Lana Vosk made her debut last year and returns with knitwear, shawls, sweaters, dresses and skirts. New to the show are Steve Mitchell and Lisa Larsen. Mitchell’s hand fabricated jewelry uses silver, brass and copper with semi-precious stones. Larsen creates statement jewelry with a rich earthy palette of beads and stones. This year’s host is Dawn Patel, shop owner of Brilliant Stranger. Her booth will feature her own line of hand woven cotton clothing and fine art wearables.

The show is open 9 am ‒ 5 pm on Aug. 18 and 10 am ‒ 4 pm on Aug. 19. The Sister Bay Village Hall is located at 10693 N. Bay Shore Drive in Sister Bay. Admission is free. For more information visit
