Art Galleries and Barbie and Collage Art Dolls
Black Lace Barbie with Butterfly
original Collage Art Doll by inkspired
created from all recycled junk mail
Okay, I have some
REALLY BIG NEWS -
One of my Collage Art Dolls was seen on my blog
by a Gallery Director in New York. She contacted me.
She wanted to include my art collage in her upcoming exhibit:
Gendered Object: Barbie As Art
The Ann Street Gallery
104 Ann Street
Curated by Virginia Walsh, director of the Ann Street Gallery
May 19 – June 30, 2012
I am still pinching myself to see if I am awake or dreaming…
My exhibit is “Black Lace Barbie with Butterfly” (as seen above)
and it’s for sale!!! In an Art Gallery!!!
Big grin here.
I feel so honored.
Now I have a big request. A really big favor to ask.
If any of you live within driving distance, and want to see a really nice gallery with some really crazy things people have done with Barbie, and have a camera….
Please, please, please
Could you take pictures and send them to me? An e-mail attachment would be just fine.
If there is some kind of ‘brochure’ or directory, I would love a hands-on copy of that too!!
The Ann Street Gallery Hours:
Wednesday and Thursday 9am – 5pm, (closed for lunch 1:30 - 2:30pm)
Friday and Saturday 11am – 5pm
There’s also an Artist Reception Sat. May 19 from 6 – 9pm, free and public
Feel free to forward this to other groups you may be involved with. Forward it to friends – and especially to anyone that might live in the area! I am so sad that I won’t be able to see this first in my life myself, so I am relying on the generosity of others to help me experience it via photographs. Any comments, photos, etc. can be sent to
Let’s play nice, and not give that e-mail to anyone that might abuse it.
My sincere thanks,
