Sixth Annual Wearable Art Show May 1 at Shorewood Village Center

April 9, 2010

GFWC Shorewood Woman's Club's Sixth Annual Wearable Art Show will take over the Shorewood Village Center on Saturday, May 1, from 9:30 a.m. to 4 p.m., with 17 exciting vendors, a number from the north shore.

This scholarship benefit event will feature interesting fashions, jewelry, a silent auction, door prizes, and bake sale with coffee.

Among the exhibitors are Shorewood jewelrymakers Annette Hirsh, Suzie Prendergast, Aggie Ressel and Mary Schall; Suzanne Kohlenberg of Shorewood's Groovy Totes; Whitefish Bay's Margie Edwards Design; Mequon's Connie Johnson, who specializes in jackets and wraps; and Bayside's Deanna Peterson of Bright as Day Designs, whose specialty is embellished handbags.

Other vendors include a fiber and felt artist from Marquette, Michigan; several clothing designers from Mukwonago; an African-inspired artist from Milwaukee who specializes in purses and scarves; and jewelers from Pewaukee, East Troy, Appleton, West Allis, and Chicago.

Members of the Shorewood Woman's Club, which meets the third Tuesday of each month at the Village Center, 3920 N. Murray Ave., are raising money for their scholarships: one for a Shorewood High School senior and two for nontraditional women students at UWM. Chairs of the show are VP Mary Anne Gross, 964-2007, and Chris O'Brien, 228-8199.
