I find myself working at the Hillsborough Gallery of Arts today. I always try to take images of the art around the gallery when I’m here, and make posts to share all the wonderful work a visitor may discover. More often than not, I take shots of the work of artists other than myself. Today I thought I would walk around and look at my art dolls with the eyes of a visitor to the gallery.
Nobody’s Fool is sitting on a high pedestal grouped together with others that all have art dolls on them. She appears to be holding court from that position.
Future Thoughts is sitting in the gallery’s front window. From this angle she appears to be a bit sceptical of the viewer. Good thing most visitors look at her from the front through the window.
Fly Girl stands beside a beautiful carved pottery vase.
From this angle, I think that my art doll Bird Girl looks a bit surprised that you can look down upon her swing.
Lily is perched on a shadow box on the wall in the print room where along with cards and prints, a visitor to HGA can find an example of work from each of the member artists and handy bio-cards that describe the work of each.
Steam is in the same pedestal grouping of art dolls as Nobody’s Fool. She looks commanding as well.
Art doll ZIggy adds a bit of sparkle to a pedestal by the wall.
There are a few more of both my art dolls and other sculptures around the gallery, but I guess you’ll have to stop by to see the rest.
