On Saturday, September 29th, students of the Notre Dame Arts Society were thrilled to showcase their creative skills amongst local professional artwork at the Burlington Doors Open initiative's ‘Culture Days’ in the Art Gallery of Burlington.

Students created a “Re-Imagine – Wearable Art” installation that was showcased in the main display of the art gallery. The installation consisted of seven hand-painted wedding gowns and corresponding vests.

The installation took nearly eight months for 24 students to plan and execute. They worked in teams of two and three to recreate dresses and vests from world-renowned artists such as Fragonard, Monet, and Carlyle. 

The dresses and vests were originally displayed at the Notre Dame Arts Night in May, where they were seen by representatives from the art gallery. Gallery representatives invited art students to participate with the seven guilds​ of artists, known collectively as Arts Burlington, that collaborate in the gallery studios. 

A sincere thank you to all those who volunteered at the main display, and to the Notre Dame staff, students and their families who came out to support The Notre Dame Arts Society!
