Call for Real People Models & Art - Salem, MA

As part of my stay on Artists' Row in Salem, MA, I am helping plan and coordinate an art weekend at Old Town Hall. Area artists are encouraged to submit art, volunteer or participate in my fashion show Sunday.

Call for models:
We are looking for people of all shapes, ages and sizes to volunteer to participate in a wearable art fashion show. Models will model the handmade wearable art of Artists from Artists' Row - Virginia E. Berry & Ellen Hardy and possibly others. Participants are asked to wear all black as they will serve as a moving backdrop for the wearable art. Models will walk a runway from Artists' Row into Old Town Hall. The fashion show is from 2 - 4 PM on August 8, 2010. Please arrive at 1 PM, Sunday, August 8, 2010 at Old Town Hall dressed in black so we can dress you with wearable art to model and organize the show.
