SOMNIATIS II

Saturday, October 29, 2016 - 7:00pm to 10:00pm

The Orillia Museum of Art & History (OMAH) is delighted to announce the premiere fundraiser for 2016, Somniatis II - Wearable Art Show!

SOMNIATIS II, Wearable Art Fashion Show and Silent Auction will take place Saturday, October 29in the ballroom at Casino Rama.  Over 120 local area artists, designers, models, hair stylists, make-up artists, poets, musicians and photographers are collaborating in this show and donating their time and talents. 

The inaugural Somniatis took place in May 2015 at the Orillia Museum of Art & History to a capacity audience.  The show, a first for Orillia showcased the  works of wearable forty-three works of wearable art walking the runway to live music and poetry readings.  The show was a huge community effort that brought out the best awe-inspiring and creative works.  The event quickly sold out and has been talked about ever since.

OMAH will host an exhibition in late July featuring photography, video and designs from Somniatis I.  

Once again, the Orillia Museum of Art & History (OMAH) is preparing for even more artists, designers, photographers showcasing the creative talent where art meets the runway!

The show was a huge community effort bringing out the best awe-inspiring and creative works. Models walked the runway to music and poetry and during the finale the designers were recognized for their hard work. The event was the place to be in Orillia, selling out quickly, and talked about as the buzz of the town long after. 

This year, OMAH will once again host this fundraiser showcasing inspired, creative experiences through expressions both visual and etheral.

"Last year, we had to turn many people away because of lack of space." said Daphne Mainprize, Chair of OMAH.  "Now, with the generous contribution of Casino Rama, we are able to showcase Orillia's artistic expression in its fullness at Casino Rama and opening our doors too a wider audience" said Mainprize.

The models are going to come down the runaway and as they come down the runway, their outfit will be accompanied by music. Each model will have had a pre-event, on-location photo shoot in advance of the main event and will be showcased with a photographer in a post-event photoshoot at Casino Rama.

The event will include a light buffet and cash bar.  There will be a separate announcement of when tickets will go on sale.  

A book celebrating Somniatis I will be on display at the fundraiser.

OMAH is pleased to announce that Casino Rama is a major sponsor of Somniatis II.

 

Ticket information coming soon.
