And speaking of Luv & Hugs, it’s getting to be that time of year again. Isn’t this a sweet image? It’s the invitation to the 3rd Annual Luv-able and Hug-able handmade plush show at gallery Hanahou in SoHo. I’m thrilled to be participating again this year.
Here are the deets:
Luv-able and Hug-able
New 2009 theme: medium and mini!
December 3 – January 9
Opening party: Dec 3, 6-9 pm RSVP [email protected]
gallery hanahou / 611 Broadway, Suite 730, NYC / galleryhanahou.com
extended holiday hours Mon-Sat: 12 – 6 pm
The popular NY holiday plush show is returning to gallery hanahou with oodles of handmade plushes for you and yours! Spread warm holiday cheer with adorable, strange, and funny unique plush toys made by more than 50 top plush artists from around the world.
The plushes will be even cuter and more affordable at this year’s 3rd annual “Luv-able and Hug-able,” with the special theme of “Medium and Mini!”: toys that are either just the right size for hugging or small enough to fit in your pocket, swing from a keychain, or be worn on a pin.
Many favorite artists from the past two years are returning with cuter-than-ever plushes, and gallery hanahou is thrilled to present plushes from a bunch of hug-able new artists too! As in previous years, the gallery will also exhibit plushes by Japanese artists whose original works are rarely available in the US – this year, that also includes designer toy giants Devil Robots and noriya takeyama!
Plushes will be available for immediate take-home, so come early to the December 3rd opening to nab your favorites! Items in the show will also be available online via galleryhanahou.com starting the week following the opening.
Aren’t these sweet? I love the “mini” theme this year. Guess even cute little plushes are affected by down-sizing. :)
