Quinlan Museum Unveiling Nine Nancy Wiley Art Creations to Permanent Collection
The Susan Quinlan Doll Museum will introduce for the first time nine of Nancy Wiley's pieces that are now part of their permanent collection. They are all illustrations Nancy created for the book Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, which are all three dimensional stage-like settings. Nancy will be there to sign books and visit on Sunday March 6th from 1 - 3. Book purchasers and their families will have free admission to the museum for the afternoon.
Also, Nancy will be signing books at the Santa Barbara Doll Club Show at Earl Warren Showgrounds on Saturday, March 5th from 10 - 3.
Artist. I create dolls that are sculptural. I paint the face and sometimes the clothes to create a portrait painting-like quality. They are doll-like but not in the traditional play sense. I consider my unpainted sculptures to be three dimensional canvases and I paint them that way.
