This technique gives children a chance to see how everything works and to have a direct contact with the artists. Accompanied by musician Ainsley McNeaney, Rag & Bone makes delightful stories about soft-hearted Owl irresistible. Owl at Home is inspired by the book of celebrated
author and illustrator Arnold Lobel.

Spirit of the Past Doll Collection

D.A Jones Branch will be hosting the “Spirit of the Past” doll collection by artist Irina Gorelkina in September & October.  You won’t want to miss it!

The exhibition presents 20 dolls, six of which are on display for the first time.

Every doll is a one-of-a-kind, fine art, historical costume figurine, made of polymer clay (head and shoulders, torso, hands and legs), wire and fabric.

Every doll’s costume consists of a minimum two layers of clothing and presents one-of-a-kind fashion.

The exhibition reflects an artistic approach to the costumes and fashions of Baroque, Rococo, Empire/ Regency, Victorian and Edwardian time periods.
