Texas Association of Original Doll Artists Presents “Galveston, Oh Galveston”
Fourteen artist members of Texas Association of Original Doll Artists (TAODA) have joined forces to present “Galveston, Oh Galveston,” an exhibit of handmade, one-of-a-kind figures, also called art dolls, with a theme designed to highlight historical sites, tourist attractions, and annual events on the Island. The exhibit is on display at Galveston Art League Gallery, 2117A Postoffice St., June 29th-July 30th. The Gallery is open from 12 noon-6pm, Thursday-Sunday. The dolls in the show are available for purchase.
Artist members of TAODA work in various media including polymer clay, air-drying clays, fabrics, and fibers to create these unique artworks. From whimsical to wicked, pirate, beach bather, or alien swimmer, each piece in the “Galveston, Oh Galveston” exhibit highlights a current or historical Galveston location or event. The exhibit includes works inspired by the Hotel Galvez, East End Lagoon, The Strand, Tall Ship Elissa, Pier 21, and other sites and events familiar to Galveston residents and visitors.
