'Art-To-Art' dolls exhibit at Melbourne Library

The Space Coast Doll Artists, a doll-making club based in the Melbourne area, will have an exhibit of one-of-a-kind, hand-crafted art dolls at the Melbourne Library, 540 E. Fee Ave., Melbourne.

All the dolls were created by members of the club, as part of a year-long challenge to create a doll, inspired by a piece of art by a well-known artist.

The results are varied and eclectic, and exemplify each artist's individual style and flair.

The collection will be on display for the month of November.

Space Coast Art Dolls club meets on the third Friday of every month.

The purpose of the club is to further the enjoyment and appreciation of art dolls, develop individual creativity, help doll makers grow in excellence as doll artisans and promote doll-making as an art.

For more information, call Patty Briggs at (321) 956-0924, email SpaceCoastDollArtists@yahoo.com or visit SpaceCoastDollArtists.com.
