Judging by the promo pics you’ll see below, this is going to prove to be a very impressive show indeed and just what Kent needs.

What better way to learn a bit more about this exciting art show but to hear from the organiser themselves:

Sunny Ramsgate is perfect for a toy art show accord to show organiser Phil McAvitee, “The humourous style of the art suits a seaside town perfectly in being fun and light-hearted. Like a saucy postcard.”

The show “Toy Art” is set to open on Sunday 3rd July at the Front Room in Bellevue Road, Ramsgate, and will give people a chance to see a relatively new art form using the medium of toys.

Art toys are hand sculpted, cast, painted and packaged to look like real products then released in limited editions. There are now makers and collectors all around the world. All four of the artists in this show have sold their work globally to an appreciative audience.

“This is Thanet’s first dedicated Toy Art show, so I’ve made sure I got four of the best British Toy Artists in the country.” says Phil McAvitee “So folk can
expect some great, if enigmatic, work. You never know you might find something you like.”

“It can be difficult getting the idea across, not least because if I use the term “adult toys” folk often get the wrong idea.”
