Judith Rauchfuss Fashion Show

One of our more unusual and amusing events took place on October 20th, 2007. With Judith Rauchfuss as one of the featured artists in our North Gallery, we decided that instead of a gallery talk we should have a fashion show. Judith agreed and we all began looking for women to walk the runway.

The results were fantastic, with 11 models, one escort, and one gracious and talented artist/designer all draped in silk, lace, velvet, and jewels.

Here are some pictures of the day's event.
