The Auguste Clown Gallery is paying tribute to the big eyed beauty of 'Blythe', with the highly anticipated exhibition, Fairies and Folklore, this August.

This international group exhibition follows the success of the Once Upon A Blythe exhibition held earlier this year and brings together the work of more than 40 doll artists from around the world.

The original Blythe doll was released in 1972 by Kenner Toy Company in the United States, Japan and Australia. Forty years on, Blythe dolls continue to inspire artists, designers and photographers to recreate her look and personality again and again.

This exhibition showcases a fairytale range of customised collectable dolls. Inspired by age-old myths and legends, each doll has its own unique character and sense of fashion and has been passionately hand-crafted by the finest talent in Blythe doll artistry.

Come along to this exciting exhibition to be held at the Auguste Clown Gallery from the 7th to 23rd of August 2015.

Entry is FREE and the displayed works are available for sale.


"Like legend and myth, magic fades when it is unused hence all the old tales of elfin kingdoms moving further and further away from our world, or that magical beings require our faith, our belief in their existence, to survive. That is a lie. All they require is our recognition." ― Charles de Lint

Opening night and reception will be held on Friday 7th August, 6pm - 8pm. The exhibition will then remain open till Sunday 23rd of August, 2015.
