Art Meets Fashion (AMF): An Evening of Local Art + Local Fashion, October 15 in SLC

Happy Monday, lovelies! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend.

This week on the blog we’re celebrating an upcoming event in Salt Lake City that you need to know about: Art Meets Fashion (AMF)–a night of local art, fashion, and music–taking place on Saturday, October 15.

Today I’ll be sharing the 411 on AMF, and beginning tomorrow we’ll profile an AMF artist or designer each day this week. All of the artists we’re profiling have ties to the local wedding world, so you’ll definitely want to read all about them. And if you’re fashion obsessed or an art lover, you should have AMF on your radar (and marked on your calendar!).

Art Meets Fashion is an annual event designed to showcase local fashion and local art in support of local causes. Produced by Heidi M. Gress and Anne Cummings-Anderson, owners of (a)perture marketing, this year marks AMF’s third year running. Ticket sales from this year’s event will benefit the YWCA of Salt Lake City.

ART: AMF 2011 will premiere Descontructing Venus,” a fine art exhibit that explores the many classical forms that have shaped contemporary ideas of beauty, love, and feminity through a range of media including painting, sculpture, photography, and video. The exhibit is curated by Gress and Cummings-Anderson, and features works by local artisits including John Bell, Trent Alvey, Adrian Prazen, Trent Call, Sri Whipple, Zuzanna Audette, Jordan Halverson, and many others.

FASHION: AMF 2011 will also premier runway collections from Shelly Huynh, Andrea Black, DesNeiges Gregory, Danny Nappi, Andrea Hansen, Mary Rino, Roberto Leone, and a selection of student designs from the Salt Lake Fashion Institute.

MUSIC: An acoustic music lounge–sponsored by SlowTrain Records and SLUG Mag–will feature performances by Aaron Ashton, Aerial Arts of Utah, Pablo Blaqk, Josef Castor, Jo Blake, and 11th House Productions.

Last year’s AMF was a smashing success and this year’s event is sure to sell out, so snatch up your tix before it’s too late! Tickets to AMF are $50 for general admission or $25 for students, and include admittance to the gallery exhibition, fashion shows, acoustic lounge, and a selection of food and beverages. Ticket sales will benefit SLC’s YWCA.

Tomorrow we’ll be profiling our first AMF artist–you’ll want to know who they are and what they have up their sleeve for the event, so stay tuned!
