The Gallery at Penn College has mounted an exhibition by Crystal Cawley (BFA ’82) titled “The Hundred Dresses Project: We Are All in This Together,” open through July 23.
The show features dress prints created by professional artists in addition to elementary school students from Pennsylvania. Cawley, a painting and printmaking alumna and a professor at the Maine College of Art, was inspired by the 1944 children’s book The Hundred Dresses by Eleanor Estes and invited artists to embellish a dress print she provided. During her visit, she will also host a workshop titled “Sampler: Paper, Fiber & Stitch.”
The opening reception for “The Hundred Dresses Project” will be held June 6 at 4:30pm, featuring a gallery talk and an opportunity to meet the artists.
