February 26, 2013 (Dubuque, Iowa) – Dubuque County Fine Arts Society is pleased to announce that it will act as an umbrella 501c3 organization for an up and coming creative program: Rogue Collections.

Rogue Collections, created by Samantha Jones, of Dubuque, is designed to give cosmetologists an opportunity to showcase a unique art form and express creative potential through accessible runway shows. By connecting passionate artists in a community setting, Rogue Collections offers inspiration for local stylists while continuing to showcase Dubuque as a creative leader and arts destination.

On April 21st, 2013, Rogue Collections will present its inaugural hair/art runway show titled ELEMENTS. The show welcomes five creative local stylists presenting artistic collections based on the elements Earth, Wind, Fire, and Water.

The show is set for 6 p.m. on Sunday, April 21 at Eronel - 285 Main St. There will be a cover of $10 at the door with VIP advance tickets available.

In order to increase community outreach, and to impact women, a portion of the proceeds will be donated to Opening Doors: Maria House & Teresa Shelter.

“Becoming a partner of the DCFAS was the first step in the right direction for Rogue Collections. We are very excited to work with the organization and learn as much as we can from them, and their affiliates. Rogue Collections and the DCFAS is the perfect partnership.  We are bringing an underrepresented art form to the forefront of Dubuque, as well as giving back to the community. Thanks to the DCFAS, we will have an opportunity to expand, and really start out the first year of production the best way possible.” - Samantha Jones - Director - Rogue Collections
