Telluride's Ah Haa auction: Nicole Finger's Klimpt dress

Nicole Telluride local Nicole Finger is quiet and self-effacing in person. In successive interviews with this fine artist over the years, Telluride Inside… and Out has never spotted an ounce of hype or self promotion. With one exception: Last year the stunning brunette and Ah Haa School for the Arts board member shook it for all she was worth to sell a dress of an original design for her favorite non-profit.

This year, expect an encore. Nicole Finger has designed another hand-painted dress, the Klimt Dress, which will be on the catwalk at the 18th annual Ah Haa auction, Friday, July 23.

The Klimt Dress, size medium, is hand-painted in layers of acrylic in a perfect replication of Gustav Klimt's famous masterpiece, The Kiss. Woven into the design are 200 hand-stitched Swarovski crystals. It's retail value? Priceless.
