For the first time in close to 10 years, the Indianapolis area will host a major gathering of doll creators and collectors.
Greenwood United Methodist Church will host the doll and bear show from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday. Antique, modern, collectible and artist dolls will be featured to buy, and interested crafters can see what it takes to create these works of Americana art.
“We want to generate more interest in dolls, and get more people involved. A lot of these porcelain dolls have been considered art for a long time, but part of our mission is to have people realize that cloth dolls are an art,” said Leslie Wright, a southside Indianapolis doll artist taking part in the show.
