Always a Bridesmaid… is a mixed media exhibition of low relief sculptures created from bridesmaids’ gowns. This invitation is open to the first 25 applicants to share their fascinating visual stories from the bridesmaid’s perspective. The creative process will kick off with a special Afternoon Tea on January 29 during which the 25 participants will receive more information about the project, listen to a guest speaker talk about tea edition and practice, and select their dress. The finished pieces will be displayed in the Gallery at Carrollwood Cultural Center in May. A reception is scheduled for May 13 from 5:30-7:30 p.m. before the theatre is transformed into a wedding venue for a production of Tony N’ Tina’s Wedding later that evening.
