Clarke & Associates presents "Urban Chic"
Clarke & Associates presents Urban Chic, a one-day show featuring diverse works by Houston-area artists, artisans and craftsmen and curated by noted Houston artist Chris Silkwood. The focus is on hand-crafted works, including wearable art, clothing, printed fabrics, handbags, jewelry for men and women, furniture, and more.
Artists Amita Bhatt, Sharon Kopriva, Randall Mosman, Sherry Owens and Chris Silkwood will exhibit beautiful limited edition art scarves, all individually designed. The scarves were made in England.
The other featured artists in Urban Chic include Onyii Brown (clothing), Piyali Sen Dasgupta (printed fabrics), Nichole Dittman (jewelry), Tarina Frank (jewelry), Eddie Hall (furniture), Rene Henry (jewelry), Chad Kimball (handmade shoes and furniture), Debra Linse (handbags), and Kim Whittington (jewelry).
Each artist was carefully selected by Silkwood to represent a unique range of magnificent artistry, including fashion, jewelry design, furniture and fabric. The artists represent diverse ethnic backgrounds.
All items in the exhibition are for sale by the individual artist. The men and women participating in the show are all established and recognized artists/artisans who have a following in Houston, in Texas and/or beyond. Some are multi-media artists, while others work in one medium. Art has become central to design, whether it be jewelry, clothing or furniture, which is reflected in Urban Chic.
