WAR IS CHILD’S PLAY: AN ARTISTIC COMMENTARY ON WAR THROUGH TOYS
New exhibition to show in the Spinning Plates Gallery in February 2012
Pittsburgh, PA- Theatre Sans Serif’s Artistic Director, Andrew W. Huntley II will be hosting an exhibition at the Spinning Plates Gallery in early February 2012 until March 2012.
This gallery exhibition will be showcasing sculptures completed by Mr. Huntley- featuring sculptures using children’s toys to illustrate the introduction of war into society at a young age. Other pieces to be featured are paintings and installation pieces by Huntley to assist his commentary. The Gallery opening on February 11, 2012 will be featuring an opening reception with food and wine as well as a soundtrack by a wide variety of composers and musicians featuring themes of military and warfare.
Huntley has had artwork featured in The Autumn Harvest Art Show with Most Wanted Fine Art and his clients have included the National Aviary, the Susan G. Komen Foundation, and the National Society of Precision Manufacturers. Huntley is an artistic visionary with amazing skills and has created a thought-provoking and almost chilling exhibit that will leave audiences disturbed and dazzled by the intricacy and the use of what normally would be considered play-things as artistic and sculptural medium. This is Huntley’s first solo art show and his first long-term exhibition at the Spinning Plates Gallery.
“So many people accept military toys as just a matter of play-things, but when people take the time to think about it the ideas behind them are actually much darker than it would first appear,” said Huntley.
War is Child’s Play’s opening on February 11, 2012 will begin at 7 p.m. and will be open until 12 a.m. at the Spinning Plates Gallery 5720 Friendship Ave. Pittsburgh, PA 15206. No admission fee, but donations appreciated.
