The Fashion of Dance -- the intersection of art and commerce and the necessity for both. Join OZ Arts at Fort Houston for Friday happy hour featuring an Artist Talk with Tony Perrin, Designer and Founder of Lock + Key for a sneak peek into the making of GHOSTED, a collaboration of music, movement, photography, and jewelry premiering at OZ Arts. An advocate for the marriage between artist and consumer, Perrin discusses the nuanced relationship between artistic vision and the market. Drinks and light bites provided; special GHOSTED ticket offer shared with event attendees; and jewelry available for purchase. Perrin, whose jewelry fuses Native American beading with classic ball-and-chain for collections of “modern eclecticism and international cool,” was raised in Southern California. He learned about bead weaving at the age of 10 from a family friend, all the while soaking in creativity amid a family that danced, photographed and painted. He spent more than a decade as a professional dancer in television and theatre, worked in costume design as well as in the New York fashion industry, and eventually landed in Nashville, where he founded Lock and Key.
