Throughout the evening, "Wear Your Art on Your Sleeve: A Presentation of Wearable Pieces" will include Fort Point artists showing their locally made, one-of-a-kind clothing as a preview of Boston Fashion Week. Margaret DeBruin shows upcycled children's clothing and accessories, Jen Mecca brings her hand-dyed shibori scarves, Amy Nguyen presents sculptural and functional cloth pieces, Anh and Philip Sawyer display their apparel for men and women, and Jen Stark introduces her fall sweater line.

At 6 pm, Liliana Folta will give an artist talk in celebration of her public art installation "Flower Blanket - The Farewell to Summer", a nostalgic representation of the end of a season – bright colors, robust gardens and sunny days. "Flower Blanket" is on view at the West Service Road entrance of the store. 

Food is generously provided by Row 34 located close by on Congress Street. The event is sponsored by Gerding Edlen, the Barking Crab, and the New England Foundation for the Arts. For more grand opening details visit FPAC,
