2D Costumes: Costume Design Renderings by Tara Maginnis.

What:An exhibition of sketches and other related graphics 1988-2005 by Tara Maginnis, Ph.D., Theatre UAF costume designer, and author of the web site: The Costumer's Manifesto

Where:University Art Gallery (312 Art Wing, Fine Arts Complex)

When: September 26 -October 7, 2005.Reception 5-8pm Tuesday, September 27th, 2005

Why: Costume design sketches for theatre are rarely seen outside the costume studio where they are used as an intermediate step to making a completed costume.This exhibit breaks with that tradition of viewing them as merely a minor step towards a completed costume, and instead exhibits them alone, as examples of graphic art.Over 100 sketches (or “costume renderings” as they are called in the business) by Theatre UAF costume designer Tara Maginnis will be on display.
