FLY-AWAY
Wearable art & runway fashion show 2024

The Valley Arts Alliance is proud to host their 18th annual VAA Wearable Art & Runway Fashion Show at the Palmer Depot on Saturday, February 17, 2024. Again, this year we will present two identical performances—a matinee at 3pm and an evening performance at 7pm.
 

Wearable Art refers to hand crafted and one-of-a-kind pieces of artwork designed to be worn by the human body as an artistic expression. Using their knowledge of color, fabric and non-traditional materials, artists create unique, wearable garments which they (or their models) wear while parading down an authentic “fashion runway”, accompanied by narration and music.
 

For our 18th year we’re using the theme “Fly-Away” for staging the show, and we’re encouraging artists to use the same theme for their creative inspiration. To view exciting scenes from years past, visit our Wearable Art archives pages at www.ValleyArtsAlliance.com/archives.
 

To become a part of the 18th annual VAA Wearable Art & Runway Fashion Show, download our application package, which contains the 2024 Entry Form, along with criteria, guidelines, and tips to make your entry a smashing success! Then return the completed application to us by Friday, February 9, 2024. Due to the overwhelming success of this show, we must limit entries to the first 25, so we urge you to submit your completed application early.
 

Tickets will be on sale beginning January 1st, 2024. The ticket price is $15 per person for each performance. For the 3pm Matinee ONLY, children 12 years old and under will be admitted free when accompanied by an adult. Tickets will be available in Palmer at Fireside Books and Non-Essentials; and in Wasilla at My House / Gathering Grounds Café. We expect both shows to sell out, so please purchase your tickets early.
 

The 18th annual Valley Arts Alliance Wearable Art & Runway Fashion Show will be an exquisite evening of art and entertainment, in what has become a well-loved winter tradition in our Valley. Don’t miss this opportunity to support the arts in the Valley!

VAA partners with Valley Performing Arts!

In the lobby of the Fred & Sara Machetanz Theatre is the Valley Arts Alliance showcase that displays locally crafted original artwork by Valley Arts Alliance members.

For the next several weeks, our showcase will contain art by Judy Vars, Becky Holsinger, and Linda Kitson. All art is made from repurposed materials. For more information, go to the Archives section of our website.

New displays at the Fred & Sara Machetanz Theatre are being planned, so that we can provide VPA theatre guests with an opportunity to view our local community artists. Just another example of the Valley Arts Alliance bringing the community together through the arts!

For more info on the VPA play list, see their website or phone the Box Office at 373-0195.

Art Meets Recycling

The Valley Community for Recycling Solutions (let’s call them VCRS) has graciously allowed us the use of their community classroom each Saturday, from 1 to 2pm.

If you love to paint, sculpt, and create, and want to get together with other artistic people, this is the place for you. This invitation is extended to anyone, or any age, interested in Art, and Recycling. And best of all, it’s FREE.

For more information, come to our weekly Thursday @ 11 meeting at Sophia's Café. The VAA and VCRS have been partnering for over 10 years. Our annual Wearable Art and Runway Fashion Show has many outfits made entirely out of recycled materials.

So join us on Saturdays at the VCRS! They are located at 9465 E. Chanlyut Circle (49th State Street, on the P-W Hwy).
