Artist and curator Jennifer Salomon launched the first in a planned series of custom T-shirt exhibitions at On Stellar Rays last month with “One Size Fits All.” Hand-painted shirts of 16 different artists adorn the gallery, draped from a wire hangar installation by James O’Meara.

“I left it totally open to each artist to do whatever they wanted, says Salomon. “We have a nice mix of shirts, a little something for everyone.” The unorthodox “work” is already garnering attention. Arts and culture journal Dossier says, “The collection defies classification with refreshing ‘art as fashion’ ‘fashion as art’ offerings.”

What’s more, the wearable art, which ranges in price from $10-$150, isn’t just inspired and affordable—Salomon hopes to use the ongoing project to raise money in support of worthy causes. “My plan for the ‘One Size Fits All’ project is to rove around to other galleries, exhibiting a different group of artists each time,” says Salomon. “I think this T-shirt project has great potential to be used as a fund raising tool and I would like to collaborate in this capacity with various non-profits.”

The “One Size Fits All” runs through August 22, 2009 at On Stellar Rays on the Lower East Side. Artists include Agata Bebecka, Michael Paul Britto, CHANDI, Brendan Fernandes, Isca Greenfield-Sanders, Brent Harada, Donna Huanca & DOMOKOS, Akiko Ichikawa, Tony Ingrisano, Adrian K, Caitlin Masley, Haley Mellin, Chris Oh, Rachel Salomon, Jenny Salomon, Nichole van Beek, Yadir Quintana, and installation by James O’Meara.
