Sundress Academy for the Arts is excited to announce that they are one of the sponsors for Paulk+Co’s “Torsos and TaTas” First Friday event. The event, which is also sponsored by Mighty Mud, Downtown Wine and Spirits and Gage Talent will take place on First Friday, November 7, 2014 between 6PM and 10PM at Paulk+Co’s located at 510 Williams Street, Downtown Knoxville, TN 37917.
A portion of all sales during the evening will be donated to BreastStrokes, an organization which provides financial support to female cancer patients through the creation of empowering art featuring the painted busts of women whose lives, in one way or another, have been affected by cancer.
In a unique mix of fashion, spoken word, and art, “Torsos and TaTas” will feature the spectacular Raku ceramic torsos created by John McRae, a Professor of Architecture at UT, and musical guest Cindi Alpert & the Corduroy Jazz Trio;
Gage Models wearing custom Couture Corsets created just for this event by special guest Royal Peasantry, from Asheville, NC, will circulate through the gallery, as SAFTA poets Erin Elizabeth Smith, Luci Brown, and Lyric Dunagan present “Pop-Up Poetry” throughout the evening.
The community is cordially invited to join us in this unique celebration of the female form benefiting Breaststrokes. Free, covered parking is available in City Parking, adjacent to Paulk+Co. In addition to being an artist studio specializing in Concrete, Stone and Metal Fabrications, Paulk+Co is a gallery that showcases local and regional artists (Find them online at Paulk+Co.com).
