Art Exhibit to Feature Toys

An exhibit of toys created by artists will be held at Middlesex County College from February 10-March 10. The exhibit will take place in the Studio Theatre Gallery.

A reception, open to the public, will be held Thursday, February 10 from 5-7 p.m.

“This is a multimedia exhibit with the common theme of toys,” said Asha Ganpat, an adjunct professor of art at Middlesex and the curator of the exhibit. “Some are actual toys that can be handled, some are sculptures, some are photographs. There’s even digital work that is shown on an electronic picture frame; the audience looks at the work through 3D glasses. Some of the work is silly and fun, other creations are more serious and provide a commentary on our culture.”

Artists include Howard Apirian, Brendan Carroll, Gwen Charles, Matt Connors, Kevin Curie, Patricia Dahlman, Robert Deeds, Dan Fenelon, David Fratkin, Chris George, Brian Higbee, Peter Johnson, Rafael Laguna, Howard Lerner, Wendy Lewis, Dennis Lick, Barbara Lubliner, Cory Marc, David Meanix, Steve Pauley, Scott Pellnat, J.C. Rivera, Sheila Ross, Steve Rossi, Genevieve Santos, Jason Scala, Stan Schoenewald and Shirley Shum.

The Studio Theatre Gallery is open from 10:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. weekdays (closed February 21 for Presidents’ Day).
