Sticks & Stones Accessories says
Sticks & Stones is proud to be hosting artist/designer Zack Blei. "Messengers" is a multimedia showcase featuring a number of original art pieces and sculptures.

The centerpiece of Zack Blei's show "Messengers" is a larger than life sculpture inspired by the 1962 film The Trials of Joan of Arc. First Blei recruited model Billy Knight, who volunteered to cut her hair for the sculpture. Then he asked Season 11 Project Runway winner Michelle Lesniak to design the leather armor and chain mail for the piece. Fine Art meets High Fashion in a unique collaboration that puts a contemporary spin on an old world icon.

Both the model Knight, and designer Lesniak will be at the opening reception along with the artist.

Special live performance by Bergerette, ( featuring Viva Las Vegas, Eve Connell, and Pat Janowski) The group performs French love songs from the 12th-18th centuries and will be doing sets at 7:00and 9:00pm
