If you live in the San Francisco Bay area, here is an opportunity to submit your work to an art gallery. ArcStudios and Gallery is creating a Dolls and Dollhouses themed exhibit to run December through January.
"Artists are invited to liberally interpret their concept of ‘dolls’ and ‘dollhouses,’ and bring to life a creature or world from your wildest imaginings".
But hurry - the deadline to apply is October 31, 2010.
Here's the vibrant blog of Indy Cloth Dollmakers, a doll club in Indiana. There are felt and cloth items, mixed media, challenge results and lots of pretty pictures of the members' work. It seems like they welcome travelling visitors.
One of a Kind Art Dolls, figurative sculpture, playline dolls, altered dolls, repaint artists, creative costumers, reborning, vintage dolls, collections, classes, new doll products. What's new out there in the many splendored world of dolls? A new place to visit every day, I hope, chosen by me, just because I like the look of it.
In a career spanning more than thirty years I have been a costume, scenic and lighting designer and worked in every kind of theater from community to educational to “broadway” style, both in Australia and the US. I was a freelance Production Designer of independent films before repurposing my life as a homeschooling mother, writer and mixed media artist. These days I write about reclaiming creativity on my Creativity Blast Blog, as well as musings about alternative education and mindful parenting. Starting your career in Film or Theater production? I can help.
