TELLURIDE – StrongHouse Studio Artists Amy Jean Boebel and Sue Hobby, creators of Screen Play, the three-piece wire aluminum window-screen garments, walked away with two World of WearableArt (WOW) awards in New Zealand last month, at the organization’s annual awards party.

Aluminum screens discarded at a construction site adjacent to Boebel’s South Fir St. studio provided the inspiration for the Telluride sculptural artists’ three-piece “garment.”

The World of WearableArt awards blend traditional perceptions of art and fashion; according to Bob Haven, professor in Costume Technology at the University of Kentucky: “Athletes have the Olympics, actors have the Oscars, musicians have the Grammies, and designers and costume creators have WOW.” 

The winners were selected from a field of 165 submissions in categories that included graffiti art, magic gardens, super heroes, dancing cowboys, charming creatures from the dark and a parallel universe.
