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.
