cards, scarves and emotional scars

trunk show Saturday, Feb. 13, 2010

VIX Emporium announces a Second Saturday trunk show and craft demo featuring Philadelphia artists Sharif Pendleton and Shera Simon: “Cards, Scarves and Emotional Scars”, an exploration of love, hate, fashion, romance and Valentine’s Day.

Simon, aka Shesherara of Girlyfied Gear, will cap off her current “Love Him/Hate Him” project, in which she asks women to have her “girlify” a shirt belonging to a significant man, past or present, and tell their story on her blog. Whether she will love him forever or would rather forget his name, Shera transforms his tee or button-down shirt into a frilly scarf, pin or bag as a keepsake. She will bring her sewing machine and “girlify” pieces for guests at the show, or garments can be dropped off at VIX ahead of time for completion before Valentine’s Day.

Sharif Pendleton is the creator of the “Emotions Can Be Dangerous” collection of laser-cut jewelry. His images explore the sharper edges of love and relationships, combining Valentine hearts with implements of destruction, such as a gun, a noose and a knife. Sharif will screenprint Valentine and Anti-Valentine cards at the show using some of these provocative motifs.

Also featuring live music by Jonathan York, plus refreshments. Saturday, February 13, 12-3 pm.
