Uncanny Dream: Doll Expo in Seattle!!!

 I was happy to be invited by the lovely and talented Redd Walitzki to submit some of my art for the long awaited Doll Expo that happened last weekend in Downtown Seattle! 

This week there is another show Uncanny Dreams-Valley of the Dolls at her studio X17, also in downtown Seattle... my pieces are staying in Seattle for this show....

Here's what she wrote about the first event:

I'm excited to announce Uncanny Dream - Articulated Fantasy 2011, a brand new Ball-Jointed Doll Expo in downtown Seattle, WA. This one-day event will feature diorama displays by 7 of the Pacific Northwest's top BJD Customizers. The Expo will also include several Vendors, space for visitors to set up their wares to trade or sell in a trunkshow, and public meetup and photography space.
Admission is Free!

Uncanny Dream will be held Sunday May 29th, 2011 in a large art studio/gallery space in Pioneer Square, right on the Seattle Waterfront. Artists were invited to create fantasy worlds for their dolls to inhabit, ranging from traditional fantasy to steampunk and cyber. We have put together an exciting list of talented BJD customizers from Seattle and the NW region to build these diorama displays, including:
Christy (Captured in Thought)
Fenris (resin+)
KireiX and Keekster (BJD Cast)
KasaMadhuri777 (Alraune Atelier)

A huge variety of customized dolls will be present, including Soom, Dollstown, Fairyland, Dollshe, Dollzone, and many many more.

We have also lined up exciting vendors to sell clothes, wigs, accessories and dolls, including Jpopdolls and Other vendors and special activities will be announced as we draw closer to the event.

The main Gallery space will feature the artists' BJD dioramas for you to enjoy and photograph. The large Hallway Gallery will feature the vendors, and have some space for visitors to set up their own wares in a trunkshow format. The large Photography Studio next to the main gallery will be a public meetup area, and has lots of space to setup and photograph any dolls you're bringing with you.

Uncanny Dream is taking place in the 619 Western Artist Building in downtown Seattle, in the X17 Gallery space. There is ample parking underneath the Alaskan Way Viaduct right behind the building (free on Sundays) and a pay-lot adjoining the building. It is also in easy walking distance to Uwajimaya Asian Market & Bookstore, International Model Toys, Pike's Place Market, and the Seattle Downtown Shopping core so visitors driving to Seattle for the event have convenient access to all Downtown has to offer.
