"Mortal Plush" Opening Reception

July 11, 2009: Opening Night at Art Whino's "Mortal Plush: I Am Not Your Toy" show was a lot of fun. Scarlett and I had a chance to meet some of the other participating artists and enjoy an evening out on the town.

Scarlett in front of the gallery early in the evening. Art Whino is located in the National Harbor, Maryland - a few exits north on the local I- 95 after Alexandria, Virginia.

The artist gives a bubble pose with her worm figure tittled "You Used To Love Me" (click images to enlarge)

We met Elizabeth Doherty (Illinois) who made these well-crafted crocheted animals (above and below).

We also met Anne Kirn (Illinois) whose work is above.

Heather Gargon exhibited these fantastic animals (above and below)

Helicopters and Vultures gave a performance during the evening as well....

One of my favorite pieces from the evening came from Jellyface.

The "Mortal Plush" show runs until August 7 - check it out! Art Whino: 173 Waterfront St., National Harbor, Maryland
