Overcoming COVID-19 delays and employing full pandemic precautions, an exhibition titled vision2020 which was rescheduled three different times featuring three different artists working in three different media, now begins November 7, 2020 with an opening reception (by appointment).

The three-artist exhibition features the internationally renowned and recognized award winning fashion and textile designer Dame Zandra Rhodes, DBE, along with historically legendary and internationally acclaimed junk-art assemblage artist and poet George Herms and Orange County’s own found-object sculpture artist Jeffrey Frisch. The exhibition, first scheduled for April, then rescheduled to September, then rescheduled again to open in November 2020 is at the Orange County Center for Contemporary Art, OCCCA.

Dame Zandra Rhodes is exhibiting her world famous fashion and textile design related paintings along with large-scale pen and ink drawings. Dame Zandra designed fashion for Princess Diana and other members of the British Royal Family in addition to a galaxy of celebrities including Freddy Mercury and Brian May of Queen.
