Elisa Contemporary Art presents A Toy Story and Other Delights, our group Holiday exhibit. The exhibit will run through January 13th, 2013.
It also includes a special Toy Drive from November 16-December 15 and donation effort to help the victims of Superstorm Sandy.
A Toy Story and Other Delights captures the toys, pleasures and amusements that filled many of our childhood days. While some take a wistful look back, others are an indulgent glimpse into the treats of today. Our artists seamlessly transition between childhood and adulthood – days filled with desire, struggle, heroism and hope – memories of childhood bliss, and the adult aching to revisit that time.
Our three featured artists include: - Mississippi artist, Allan Innman - Virginia artist, Megan Marlatt - Hawaii Hyper-realists, Peter and Madeline Powell
We’re also exhibiting the work of James Chen-Feng Kao and Shari Weschler Rubeck.
