Fashion can knit groups together within a shared identity, and at the same time, can also express individuality. It’s not only the final product of clothing seen on a runway. It’s the outcome of a process that begins with an idea that evolves through textiles, design, technique and application. CoPA members find inspiration in fashion and interpret all its facets including design, style, and trends in their photographs. 

This exhibition is on view at Saint John’s On The Lake
1800 N. Prospect Avenue, Milwaukee, WI 53202
Open and free to the public every day, 10:00–5:00

Recent Milwaukee Institute of Art and Design (MIAD) alumnae Ariana Vaeth and Caitlyn Doran are two up-and-coming painters to watch.  Vaeth explores the melodrama of everyday life with paintings that are an autobiographical look at her own transition into adulthood. Doran’s paintings of everyday moments exude a dreaminess or contemplative mood. Her unique visual narratives are open to interpretation and provide the viewer with an opportunity for storytelling.
