By Elizabeth Scinta Photos provided by KMAC Museum Calling all art lovers and shopaholics to KMAC Shop’s newest showcase, Couturism: A Fashion Focused Shopping Event. The event will kick off on June 23 with a reception and trunk show featuring small bites and libations from 5 to 7:30 p.m. KMAC Museum has a rich history dating back to 1981 when the former Kentucky first lady, Phyllis George founded the Kentucky Art and Craft Foundation. In 2001, it was rebranded to the Kentucky Museum of Art and Craft, and finally to KMAC Museum in 2016. The museum’s mission is to connect the community to art and creative practice through their exhibits, events and shop. Couturism will showcase fashion accessories, jewelry and art wearables by local, national and international designers. Make sure to look out for Austin Kopp, Kris Thompson, Charisma, Julia Comer and Kathy Wade as they’re all local artists. Make sure to also check out local Edwin Ramirez’s innovative jewelry, and Anchal and Forma Design’s WearableTextiles. For those who might not be familiar, WearableTextiles refers to any worn fabric based item such as clothing or accessories created from fiber art, according to Ashley Peterson, the Marketing and Communication Manager at KMAC Museum.
