Makers Movement in America Show


Queen of Serpents

Exhibition Kicked Off 2015 Season

Myth Interfaces Routine : Fashion Designer Vilma Mare Explores Contemporary Meanings Through a Lens of Baltic Mythology

The 2015 Season will kicked off early with the opening of a fashion installation in Cohoes, New York at The Foundry for Art Design + Culture on November 1, 2014 by ECC Designer Vilma Mare. Mare will be exploring contemporary culture through an installation involving a symbolic ceremony that recreates a time of connection and cleansing. Egle, the 'Queen of Serpents' is a feminine image with hereditary connection to indigenous rites, worship of ancestral land and family values, and harmonious dialogue between Humankind and Nature. This story depicts an ancient ritual understood from a female perspective whereby Egle takes a central role as she becomes a mediator between "sacral" and "secular" spheres.

The exhibition was moved to the McDaris Fine Arts Gallery located at 623 Warren Street in Hudson, NY for the months of January and February. Upcoming variations on the exhibition to to be announced as available.

2015 Show Theme :

The Makers Movement in America


The ‘Anti-Hero’ as a Symbol of the Makers Movement in America

A current trend is sweeping across the country wherein people are becoming awakened more than ever before. With this higher consciousness an awareness of our inner selves and our surroundings has increased. A new relationship with our environment has begun. Increasingly young, highly educated people are choosing professions and lifestyles that give them a meaningful connection between themselves and others and with that is an interest in the origins of the things they consume. A visual reference to this desired connection and awareness is envisioned for the 2015 Electric City Couture Show.

The 'Anti-Hero' in this context is the overlooked everyday men and women who work at jobs that keep our society moving and inspired. The people ‘making the donuts.’ Specifically for us, those who are engaged in the mechanics of the creative economy. This could include the previously overlooked professions that are now experiencing a renaissance in contemporary society that are artisan and craftsmanship in nature.
