OCEAN SHORES WEARABLE ART SHOW
A STAGE WEST COMMUNITY THEATRE PRODUCTION
NEWS & EVENTS
We were so happy to be able to hold the 2022 Ocean Shores Wearable Art Show in person and we are ready to do it again in 2023. Applications are now available for Artists and Designers to enter this year's show.
The Wearable Art Show is intended to bring in artists, and visitors to Ocean Shores while utilizing an Ocean Shores community venue. Stage West Community Theatre invites artists of all media to create functional or not so functional pieces of Wearable Art. Artists are encouraged, but not required to create pieces along the theme of the show. Wearable Art is hand-crafted and one-of-akind artwork designed to be worn on the human body. ~No Ready Made Costumes~
June 3, 2023 - Ocean Shores Wearable Art Show "Transitions"
OSWA Now Produced by Stage West Community Theatre
In 2018 the Producers of the Ocean Shores Wearable Art Show chose to support Stage West Community Theatre (SWCT) by pledging the proceeds of that show to support the first Summer Theatre youth program. The summer program was a success as was this new partnership. The SWCT Board has adopted the WA Show and will act as the production team for future shows. Show proceeds will continue to support theatre programs for North Beach area youth. In addition, SWCT is a 501c3 organization which allows the addition of show sponsors to increase the annual revenue possibilities and will handle the accounting and ticket sales for the show. Tricia Funk and Eric Bjella will continue on as Artistic Directors and look forward to working with SWCT and whole-heartedly support their theatre projects.

Wearable Art Show at OS Convention Center is a party with a purpose!
The theme is almost a literal description of “wearable art.” The runway-style fashion production — to be staged Saturday at the Ocean Shores Convention Center — is a fun, fast-paced celebration of creativity gone crazy with hand-crafted, one-of-a-kind artwork designed to be worn.

All types of artists come to the runway to showcase their functional, and not so functional, pieces of wearable art.
Each year the Wearable Art Show has a theme. Artists are encouraged to create their pieces in line with this theme, but they are not required to do so. All pieces are unique, one-of-a-kind, creations for the show.
