The Bromo Seltzer Arts Tower presents "Art of Lace," a collection of pieces inspired by the Kebaya dress originating in Indonesia. The exhibition is on view Saturdays beginning February 3, 2018. A free opening reception takes place Saturday, February 10, 2018 from 4:30 to 6:30pm where guests have the opportunity to view the exhibition, meet the artist and enjoy light refreshments. 

It was on Bali, the island of Gods, that Stacy Stube’s true passion comes alive through fashion. Inspired by the colorful traditional dress, the Indonesian American went on to create the luxury fashion house of Elsa Fitzgerald. 

The technique for this fine dressmaking is a process where the fashion artist paints with lace when applying the floral lace motifs to dress form. The pieces are then individually hand sewn together to combine as one garment entirely as a patchwork of lace.

In "Art of Lace," fashion designer Stacy Stube combines the aesthetics of 1920's glamour with traditional Balinese bridal wear. Stacy has spent 17 years working in the fashion industry between the United States, Europe and Asia for brands such as Burberry, Alexander McQueen, Temperley London, Club Monaco and Hugo Boss. She is the founder of luxury fashion house of Elsa Fitzgerald.

The designer has returned to her hometown of Baltimore, Maryland to revive the garment industry through her work between the University of Baltimore Center for Entrepreneurship & Innovation and the Maryland Historical Society - Costumes Archives.

Picture the ocean as it churns and cascades, spits and crashes… grooving time into the cliffs of the Pacific Coast. She is grand, she is elegant, and her sharp ridges and sea urchin tide pools captivate the senses. Your vision widens to see ancient ferns unfurling within a forest of moss & conifers. This moment in time and space is one of many naturescapes The Dandy Vagabonds have created for their exhibition of two and three dimensional works entitled Moonifestations of Ancestor Earth: a voyage of expansion. 
The Dandy Vagabonds are a Baltimore based pair of curious, playful artists who thrive on telling stories of whimsy, adventure, insight, and balance through performance art, fiber arts, the tactile, and the ephemeral. Inspired by the lineage of stones and the memory of flying, the collaborative duo, xander & elliot weave together moments of ancestor past and future in their panoramic environments.  They invite you on a journey throughout Earth element tapestries and into the Cosmos.
