“I am doll eyes, doll mouth, doll legsI am doll arms, big veins, dog begYeah, they really want youThey really want you, they really doYeah, they really want youThey really want you and I do too
I want to be the girl with the most cakeI love him so much, it just turns to hateI fake it so real, I am beyond fakeAnd someday, you will ache like I ache.”
— from Doll Parts by Courtney Love

This exhibition promises to be beautiful, weird, and even wacky. The brainchild of gallery director and artist R L Gibson, each artist was sent a box of porcelain doll parts to do with what they wish. Use some, use them all, enhance with anything you wish. Gibson says, “This show is a who’s who of many of my favorite female artists…”
