Here are the pics of the recycled paper dress from before.  I fixed a few things that ripped and added some details.  This dress is now showing in Cambridge, NY at the Valley Artisans Market until the end of April.

Paper dress

This dress was created for a local art show about the history of the building, now turned into artist studios, but once a shirt factory.  My grandmother worked in this building a long time ago, so it holds some special meaning to me.  I chose recycled materials, and created this dress out of brown packing paper and newspaper.  The dress was created on a very old dress form that my grandmother found at a garage sale.  This is currently on exhibit at The Shirt Factory Gallery until September 27, 2014.

For whatever reason, I cannot find pictures of the dress that I took before bringing it to the gallery, of course.  If I find them I will post them.  This is the picture at the gallery, which doesn’t show a whole lot of detail.
