Also Featuring Community Doll Collection - Bring Your Dolls!
Exhibit Runs May 14 - July 20, 2014
Doll-Like brings together artists working across disciplines and media who integrate ideas pertaining to dolls into their artwork. Puppets, marionettes, figurines, action figures and even living dolls are substitutes for our self, offering a vehicle to communicate and examine ideas about play, therapy, magic, ritual, spirituality, memory, scale, empathy, identity, gender and notions of beauty and idealized form. Subverting traditional ideas that we associate with this familiar emblem of our individual and collective humanness, this show aims to challenge our preconceptions and stereotypes.

Ricky Alfosno has been a mainstay on the East Coast jazz scene since the early 1970s. A product of the modern jazz movement with a unique trumpet style steeped in the blues with plenty of swing.
Ricky has worked with many area jazz luminaries including Mario Pavone, Michael Mussillami, Bill Lowe, Ed Blackwell, Joe Fonda, Nat Reeves, Tom Chapin, Andy Jaffee, David Liebman and the late Bill Barron. Ricky recorded and toured with R/B great Joe Cocker leading the horn section in Cocker’s return to prominence following the great Woodstock Festival of 1969.
