Once More: UAS Carpenter takes top honor at Wearable Art Extravaganza
The wood veneer craftsmanship of UAS carpenter David Walker once again earned First Place in the 2012 Wearable Arts Extravaganza held February 11-12.
Attendees at the Juneau Arts and Humanities Council's biggest fundraiser had no problem voting Walker's Beauty in the Beast number one for the People's Choice Award. The piece is inspired by victims of breast cancer. UAS student Anna Gonwa Ramonda was the model for the piece. Walker is no stranger to top honors in Wearable Arts. Walker has placed in three of the four international World of Wearable Arts shows he has entered in New Zealand. Walker brought home the “supreme winner” award in 2009 for “Lady of the Wood,” a Marie-Antoinette style ball gown. In Juneau his wood gowns have earned him a prize in every show he’s entered.
