ArtBeat 2000-2017: Costumes by A.C. Kemp
August 13, 2017 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pmFree
This month’s Inside-Out gallery show is a retrospective of A.C. Kemp’s eighteen years of costumes for the annual Somerville ArtBeat festival. Each year since 2000, A.C., who emcees the festival’s Elm Street stage, has created a new costume to go with that year’s theme—an art bee for “ArtBeast,” a costume covered in Monarch butterflies for “Migration” and a Marie Antoinette-style dress decorated with fabric beets and carrots for “Roots,” among many others. In this exhibit, some of her favorite costumes are displayed in fantasy settings, surrounded by fiber art props she made for the installation.
Opening Reception Sunday, August 13 from 4:00-6:00
