Visit the Art of the Doll Exhibit in Petaluma

The Art of the Doll exhibit is at the Petaluma Arts Center, 230 Lakeville St., Petaluma (take the Washington exit off the freeway in Petaluma and turn left onto Washington... then turn left on Lakeville and the Arts Center is in the old train station on your right). The Phoebes were invited to provide a special exhibit of our dolls. Phoebes who were at the reception on July 17 know for a fact that our wonderful table full of dolls attracted a lot of attention and got rave reviews from the other attendees. The exhibit is open from noon to 4 p.m., Thursdays through Mondays, through Sunday, Sept. 19. Each Saturday, and also one Sunday, featured doll artists will be conducting lectures and trunk shows.

Phoebe Window Display at The Book Shop

The Flying Phoebes have done it again!
Thanks to Sharon's gift for conceiving fabulous displays, Kelly's acrobatic skills in putting everything in its place, Donna and Bett's critical input, and Shirley's sign delivery, The Book Shop at 1007 B Street in Hayward has another fantastic window display to amuse and attract patrons. The display went up on July 1 and will remain for the month of July.
The photos never do the displays justice since there is no way to get around the reflection and glare on the glass. You have to drop by and see it yourself! We have outdone ourselves.

A huge thanks goes out to all of you who have contributed your wonderful dolls and items to add to the display. The Book Shop wanted us to let everyone know there is a "B Street Party" to be held on Thursday, July 15 from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. Our dolls are sure to attract a lot of attention. Unfortunately, that is the same day as our class and meeting, but try to make it over to B Street whenever you can and tell all your friends to check it out. The feedback from passers-by while we were putting up the display was so positive. Good job!

If you have dolls in the display, it will be taken down on Saturday, July 31, between 10 and 11 a.m. You can pick up your dolls during that time.
