WAG: The Wearable Art Gala is into its 6th year. The WAG is the Alternator's annual fundraiser. This year, the WAG will be unleashed into an interactive & wild party.

THE ATMOSPHERE: After the Gala, mingle & dance with the WAG performers, organizers, & friends. DesignMode.ca's project "Fluff" brilliantly decorates two spaces; the Atrium & the Dance Studio. Design Mode invites you to embrace your sense of imagination and reconnect with your inner child in a fantasy world.

THE MUSIC: To begin the night, DJs JGirl & Manousos collaborate with Feel The Rhythm infusing dance-friendly Electronic music with world beat drum rhythms. At midnight guests Wood & Soo of Vancouver take to the stage with their exciting 4-turntable DJ set and test the boundaries of genre lines by mixing anything and everything together in a cohesive party style.

[The Wearable Art GALA]

The GALA takes place at the Mary Irwin Theatre On Sat Mar14-09 from 8PM to 10PM.

This fun and funky event is not a fashion show in the traditional sense - it's an artistic exploration of all types of body adornment and features creative experimentation with hair, jewelry, accessories and original one-of-a-kind wearables made from any and all materials, including plastic, metal, and paper. Artists have created outfits from everything from computer keyboards and teabags to string licorice,bubble wrap and chopsticks. Artists exhibiting work in the show are supported by an enthusiastic team of volunteers, including hair and makeup stylists, lighting, sound, & music experts and a front-of-house crew.

Tickets to the WAG are available at the Rotary Centre Box Office. Tickets: $45 / $33 students with ID. All Gala ticket holders can attend the after party "UNLEASHED" for free.

Look for a feature article in Okanagan Life & Off Centre Magazines in the coming weeks.
