Time ticking to vote for fav garment
Thursday is the last chance art and fashion lovers will be able to get up and close with entries from this year’s Wearable Arts competition — and cast ballots for their favourite garment.
Dozens of award-winning works from around the world are on display at the Port Moody Arts Centre until March 14 as part of the annual exhibit sponsored in part by The Tri-City News. And, sometime next week, show organizers will announce name of the winner of the People’s Choice award.
Committee chairperson Ann Kitching said Wearable Arts gives emerging artists a platform to showcase their talent. “That’s the great thing is that everybody can try to do it,” she said. “With Wearable Arts, you can have an outfit made by a 15-year-old girl next to one done by an 80-year-old man.
“I mean, only your imagination is holding you back for a competition like this.”
PMAC (2425 St. John’s St.) is open Thursday until 8 p.m.
