Invoking Venus: Feathers in Fashion and Art Show2019-11-14 7:00pm - 9:30pm Location: Great Hall, VanDusen Garden Visitor Center
Join us for a presentation by Vancouver artist Catherine Stewart, followed by a live vintage fashion show MC’ed by historian Ivan Sayers. This engaging and entertaining evening will highlight the use of feathers and fashion over the 20th Century.
In this body of work, Stewart explores the role that colour, pattern and adornment play in courtship and attraction. Through the juxtaposition of images of bird plumage alongside those of vintage fabrics, the parallels in human and bird behavior become apparent.
Light refreshments will be served.
Tickets: Members $25 / Non-members $35
