Musings from the Moonroom

Thoughts on Art, Inspiration, Creativity and Spirit

Dreamkeeper and Wishmaker


In July I was invited to participate in Raining Art Dolls, an art doll exhibit hosted by wonderful art doll artist Patricia Anders. The Raining Art Dolls exhibit is being held at Ten Women Gallery in Venice, CA, September 1 to September 30. Twenty-nine artists will have art dolls in this exhibit.

Three parameters anchor the exhibit: the art dolls, the size requirement (8″ in length) and that all the art dolls will be suspended in the front window at Ten Women Gallery. It should be quite a visual treat.

I submitted two art dolls for this installation: Dorian the Dreamkeeper and Wyan the Wishmaker.

Dorian and Wyan feature hand sculpted heads that are attached to hand-formed hollow bodies.

You can read some local press on the exhibit here.

If you are in the Venice area, please stop by to see the exhibit. Ten Women Gallery is located at 1237 Abbot Kinney Blvd.
