This year’s theme, “Space is the Place”, was chosen by Cheryl Williams, is based in the future, to explore through the imagination, how bodies may evolve, mutate, become hybridized and genetically altered, through dolls, and other media. To create this futuristic environment, this year we have also included drawings, painting, poetry, murals and video. The show opens with a reception on December 8, 2012 from 2 -5 pm. In conjunction with the exhibit, we are also offering doll making workshops with expert doll artists on December 15, January 5 and 19 from 1- 3 pm.
