The Dollhaus Art Gallery presents:
The Terrible Toy Fair II

The Dollhaus Art gallery has been open for almost two years now. The Terrible Toy Fair I was held at The Dollhaus Art gallery in Williamsburg, Brooklyn February 2003. Due to it?s success and growing interest we have been invited to a bigger space and central location in Manhattan,
Cbgb?s Art Gallery.
The idea is simple: all pieces shown must be a toy of some kind, either, modified or wholly created by the artist. The group show will consist of over a hundred artists; some local and some from New Orleans, California and other parts of the world.
Incorporated into the show is the art of high school students who were inspired by The Dollhaus and created a project based around it.
We invited the same high school art teacher to participate again with her new students.
The idea of a toy-based show is a continuation of the theme of The Dollhaus. The artists shown have all been highly bizarre yet have retained a child like sense of playfulness in their work. The work at The Dollhaus is well executed and skillful, always valuing technique as much as concept. As well as the work in the gallery, The Dollhaus has a unique permanent collection constantly rotating ?Madame Dollhaus and her Creepy Toy Shop? which is full of curious toys, dolls and other hand made oddities.
