GALLERY 3: GWEN MURPHY: THEATER OF Dolls

Murphy returns to the very New Englandish roots of her sculpture: Handmade Dolls. This collection of folk could be described as Character dolls, and assembled they take on the appearance of archetypal actors waiting for theplay to begin. Murphy builds her sculpture in exquisite detail with sensitivity to emotional expression, and reference to historic detail . They seem to step out of the pages of a book of fantasy, to live in three dimensions. May 3-July 3
