Open Call for Toy-themed Exhibition!
TOYS curated by Asha Ganpat
September 14 - October 31, 2018
Mikhail Zakin Gallery, The Art School at Old Church, Demarest, NJ

This September, TOYS returns for its third iteration! You are invited to submit your toy-based works! We are looking for pieces made from toys, depicting toys, and resembling toys, including themes of childhood and the nature of play. 2D works will be considered, 3D and interactive works preferred. Light-up, wearable, touchable, and sound art is encouraged.

The Mikhail Zakin Gallery at The Art School at Old Church (TASOC) exhibits art and fine crafts to the public and members of the art school community. The mission of the gallery is to showcase emerging and established artists. The spaces and the art within are to be used as teaching tools to introduce artists, teachers, students and the community to new ways of working and thinking. It is also a goal to help support curators and curatorial explorations that introduce new artists and ideas to the public.
