Models will try on Sylvester’s dresses and walk for the casting. Those selected will receive a digital file photo taken during the Art Festival by photographer Juan Prieto for their portfolio and be included in the Festival program. Sylvester describes his Ladies' Dress series art in the following way…“In my contemporary clay art series of ladies’ dresses made from clay, wire and other materials, I use the unexpected medium of clay, commonly fashioned into utilitarian vessels and dinnerware, to symbolize the diversity of roles assumed by women in the 21st century. From the safe harbor of home to an arena of mass appeal, women, what they pursue and where they find themselves in the world, are reflected by this series of dresses. My observation of female identity ranges from the private domain of a gardener who lovingly nurtures plants to grow to the nationally televised public humiliation of pop singer Janet Jackson during the country’s most widely watched sports event. Ceramics, wire and other materials are manipulated into representations of what woman accomplish in and out of the public eye. As fantasy abstractions of this form, my dresses respectfully acknowledge all that women accomplish, whether they are connecting with nature or dancing onstage".
