Join the Hotel Galvez & Spa and the Cruising on Full Power’s designers for an “Evening of Wearable Art” on Friday, Jan. 11, 2013 from 7:30 to 10:00 p.m. in the hotel’s Music Hall. More than 17 designers from Europe and the United States will showcase their wearable art and sell their unique, one-of-a-kind pieces that range from funky and fun clothing and jewelry to hand-painted silks, hand-woven jackets and exquisite jewelry. Admission to this event is free.
For the past seven years, a group of nationally and internationally renowned artists have gathered once a year to take a one week cruise on Princess Cruises. The cruises were sparked seven years ago by two of the artists, Helen Weichman and Rebecca Floeter. Both had clients all over the world and creating a cruise vacation where everyone could meet and vacation for a week was an idea that has turned into a yearly Artist Reunion. The Cruising on Full Power, “Artist Onboard” cruises have grown each year as more artists and buyers hear about this amazing experience and join in this yearly journey.
Their next cruise, leaves from Galveston, Texas on Jan. 12, 2013. “What has always been a one night “before cruise” hotel stay has turned into a “vacation before the vacation” at the Hotel Galvez,” said Weichman. “Creating an “Evening of Wearable Art” at the Hotel Galvez was a perfect fit for this historic hotel and the designers and their buyers.”
