Patricia Field Heads to Catskill, NY for ARTFASHION Show

Saturday Sep 16, 2017

Patricia Field's ARTFASHION show has been making waves in the art community from Miami's Art Basel to Berlin to Bergdorf Goodman in New York City to, most recently, Mykonos, Greece-and the world has taken notice.

That the iconic, magenta-haired Ms. Field is bringing her show to Catskill is already major-that she is doing so as a benefit for Greene County Council on the Arts (GCCA), a non-profit arts organization, is also a major coup, one orchestrated by long-time GCCA supporter, Catskill resident, and friend of Ms. Field's, Michele Saunders.

Ms. Field's approach to ARTFASHION is to present her runways in an environment that is filled with colorful artwork, usually made by her stable of ten artists, including Scooter LaForge, Ben Copperwheat, Iris Bonner aka ThesePinkLips, Jody MORLOCK, and more.

For the Catskill show, Ms. Field's artists will be joined by several Hudson Valley artists, including Portia Munson, Justin Love, Nina Isabelle, and Ginnie Gardiner, as well as a number of New York City artists, including Lola Jiblazee, Renee Xors, Keli Lucas, and ClockworksCros, a Surrealist artist whose works are collected by several prominent collectors and celebrities.

Production/event design is being donated by Geoff Howell Studio. Legendary DJ, producer and re-mixer Tedd Patterson will provide music and sound. Michele Saunders will use her extraordinary eye for talent to present diverse and interesting local talents on the runway. All items in the show will be for sale, and a portion of sales will go to benefit GCCA.

The weekend will culminate in a live Q&A with Patricia Field on Sunday, October 8 to open GCCA's upcoming CENTENNIAL: SHE exhibition, which commemorates the 100th anniversary of women getting the right to vote in New York State through contemporary artwork and historical context of the suffragette movement. Artwork presented by Ms. Field and several other ARTFASHION artists will also be featured in SHE exhibit. Both the Q&A with Ms. Field and the opening reception are free and open to the public.

Ticket prices for the ARTFASHION shows are reasonable at $20 online and $25 at the door. For those who want a little something extra, GCCA is also offering VIP "Pre-Runway" packages ($100 per person) that include a champagne reception, meet and greet with Patricia Field and artists, photo/video op, sneak peek at final rehearsal/fittings and behind the scenes, preferred VIP seating during runway. GCCA expects this once-in-a-lifetime event to sell out and suggests people mark their calendars and buy tickets early.

The Patricia Field ARTFASHION show is sponsored by Joe's Garage Catskill, Columbia Greene Federal Credit Union, Verdigris Tea, Furniture Plus, Woodstock Healing Arts, and James & Purcell Palmer Foundation.
Greene County Council on the Arts (GCCA), based in Catskill, is a not-for-profit arts and programming organization serving Greene County and surrounding communities.

GCCA nurtures artistic endeavors by providing a wide range of services, including year-round changing exhibitions, youth arts workshops, arts education, community arts and county regrant programs, and a bi-monthly newspaper, Arts Alive, which features artist opportunities and cultural events in the region.
