CALL FOR SUBMISSION: “DOLLHOUSE” exhibition Dec 4th – Jan 15th

“Dolls are substitutes for humans, and are used in both childhood and adult
play. A plastic doll, robot, sock monkey, paper doll, rag doll, nutcracker,
marionette, soldier, voodoo effigy and blowup sex toy, they are all
repositories of our fears, fantasies, and desires. We love them, we fear them;
we cherish them, we tear them apart; we talk to them, they talk to us. We
imbue them with our imaginary life and in return they transport us into their
worlds. For the Holiday Season, Arc Gallery will be figuratively transformed
into a giant dollhouse for one-of-a-kind dolls and dollhouses. Artists are
invited to liberally interpret their concept of ‘dolls’ and ‘dollhouses,’ and
bring to life a creature or world from your wildest imaginings.”
