Kadoya Gallery is pleased to announce the opening of Worn Majesty by Pueblo Artist Anne Scott on Saturday, October 1, 2016. The exhibition opens in one of Pueblo’s historic industrial warehouse spaces with a runway fashion show featuring artful garments with longevity and meaning. [CLICK HERE FOR FREE TICKETS] After the opening reception the designs will be on display at Kadoya Gallery through October 31, 2016. The artist showcases in her creative designs the powerful relationship we have with textiles and their story. One of the objectives of this project is to encourage redesign and experimentation of previous fashion concepts. The artist has selected hemp as the primary source product for her textiles which reflects the current trajectory of thoughtful sustainability in Colorado. “Biobased products which are derived from plants and other renewable agricultural, marine and forestry materials, provide an alternative to conventional petroleum derived products,” according to the artist.

Earlier this year, Anne received the competitive Career Advancement Award from the Colorado Creative Industries which targeted Fashion Arts as a strategic priority. Career Advancement Awards support Colorado creative entrepreneurs and artists to help stimulate their commercial creative business. The goal is that awardees will achieve tangible business benefits such as increased revenue, new audiences or improved management practices. 

Recently Anne has been actively involved in local public art projects which include the colorful and whimsical ‘pot head’ planters at Central Plaza, the ‘Geodes in the Park’ sculptures at Civic Center Park in Pueblo West and most recently her ‘There’s No Place Like Home’ sculpture in the Yellow Brick Road Garden at the top of Union Avenue. 

Anne Scott attained her bachelor’s of fine arts at Eastern Michigan University with a concentration in sculpture. Her work ranges from large-scale public art to feminine figures in the delicate temper of glass and paper.

Sustainability for Our Earth 

Hemp farming is an important step toward creating raw materials, finished products, and innovative technologies to catalyze a sustainable future in which every-day products are renewable and grown using regenerative agriculture. Hemp is a renewable resource that can help reduce market dependency on agricultural chemicals, synthetic fibers and plastics, lumber, cotton, and other non-sustainable industrial materials. It contributes to environmentally responsible food and fiber production, forest conservation, reduction in agricultural pesticide use, and soil remediation. Hemp sequesters carbon from the atmosphere thus mitigating the rise of CO2 levels responsible for climate change. Furthermore, pollinators thrive on the proliferous pollen created by hemp plants. From hemp super-capacitors for use in batteries to energy efficient hemp homes, industrial hemp is a crop that can Grow Our Future. 

The 29 states that have legalized industrial hemp farming, per provision Sec. 7606 of the farm bill, include: Alabama, California, Colorado, Connecticut, Delaware, Hawaii, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Maine, Maryland, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, Nevada, New York, North Carolina, North Dakota, Oregon, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Tennessee, Utah, Vermont, Virginia, Washington, and West Virginia. 

Our community is well suited for hemp related agriculture, research and the manufacturing of products including oil, textiles, clothing, paper, building materials, food additives and fuel.  - PEDCO (Pueblo Economic Development Corporation)
