The TOYPlay exhibit is a veritable toybox of indoor and outdoor installations. Artists create imaginative hand made toys and art.
The Art Center is an exciting toybox for adults and children. Special events and classes are being offered during the course of the show.
There is a wide range of submissions in all media. From paintings of toys, actual handmade toys and puzzles, and abstract interpretation of the “typical” toy, the Arts Council is filled with fun. Come by and take a look at reinterpreted, rebuilt, and regenerated toys. There is a study of dolls by Gera Witte, a fantastic collection of paintings by Steve Toornman, a large “puzzle” mural by Laura Kohl. And fun grids constructed by Jacky Trimble with a wink at collected toy prizes.
Gallery hours: Tues.-Sun., 1-4pm.
