Top Drawer eNewsletter 6.12.13

We’d like to thank everyone who attended last month’s Art Night and the reception for Drawing From The Heart: Michael Pascale and Livy Young!  It was an amazing turnout for an amazing show, turning out to be the MOST SUCCESSFUL SHOW EVER for the Top Drawer program!!  We couldn’t have done it without the support and enthusiasm of the community, and we’d like to thank all those who played a key part in its success, in particular the fabulous Carla DeStefano!  Thanks Carla! 

We’d like to announce that it’s already time for our new exhibition, which is a pleasant change from our typical show schedule – Rope Doll Show!  Most followers of Top Drawer know that for the past few years Top Drawer’s artists have been making one-of-a-kind Rope Dolls, based on the traditional rag doll but centered around the process of wrapping material around a rope armature and embellishing with just about every knick knack and doo-dad you could possibly imagine.  These dolls epitomize Top Drawer’s spirit of creating truly unique objects and of recycling materials to create something completely unexpected and magical.  For those who have over the years donated to us boxes of buttons or yarn or old jewelry, stop by and see if you can see your treasures in their newest incarnations!  There is something for everyone in this show, with over 70 Rope Dolls in an uncluttered display and much more, including our new rag shag rugs, felt feather purses, cork-people sculptures, woven T-shirt placemats and of course plenty of paintings and drawings to pour through.  Stop by during our normal business hours of Monday – Friday, 9 am – 3 pm, Saturday 10 am – 5 pm, or come to the Art Night Reception for Rope Doll Show on Thursday, June 27, 5 pm – 9 pm!  We’ll see you soon, and until next time, keep on supporting local arts and artists with disabilities!
