Crowds flock to see Wearable Art Mandurah frocks at new CASM exhibition | Photos

Crowds flocked to the Contemporary Art Spaces Mandurah (CASM) on Friday, for the launch of a feature exhibition on Wearable Art Mandurah 2018.

Attendees filtered around the exhibition space, enjoying canapes and soaking up the creative atmosphere.

Each of the 24 featured garments at CASM was accompanied by an artist statement, allowing guests to read about the concept behind the piece.

The evening was an opportunity for guests to get an up-close-and-personal view of their favourite garments from this year’s showcase.

Scaffolding was used throughout the exhibition after organisers decided to draw inspiration from the 2018 showcase’s theme of “metallic” to present the pieces.

Live entertainment and speeches by organisers and deputy mayor Caroline Knight also featured on the night.

Ms Knight described the event as “truly fantastic” and “the envy of many” when she addressed the audience on the night.

“We should be incredibly proud of what we’ve achieved here in Mandurah,” she said.

The exhibition presented by Act-Belong-Commit and the City of Mandurah, will run throughout August, before it closes on September 9.
