Paper Doll Show

I consider my self so lucky to have been invited to participate in the Paper Dolls Uncut Art Show  at the Duckett Gallery at the Mary C. O'Keefe Cultural Center of Arts & Education in Ocean Springs Mississippi.

What a great idea! Paper dolls, they are art to be played with. They are for play! 

My work, set up in the gallery!
I did two series for this show.  The first I did the tiny houses, with interchangeable flags. (I hope to get those documented and on my website soon.  I will post the link when I do.) 
The second series, which can be seen in more detail on my website, were a series of little boxes with a vintage photo in the rear. Then I made little scenes that could be changed out in front of the images.

My Paper doll Boxes! The available boxes are for sale at my Etsy Shop
This was such a fun project.  I loved having a theme, or an idea to work off of that came from outside of me.  It was refreshing. 

It was also so nice to see how all of the other artists interpreted the idea.
