For the second year in a row, gallery hanahou is pleased to present Luv-able and Hug-able, in infectiously affectionate plush show! The 2007 show had everyone from Time Out New York to Craft magazine buzzing with plush-mania. There will be even more to love in the 2008 show! This year, the gallery is adding luv-able plushes by many new artists, including eight specially introduced by Plush You (plushyou.blogspot.com), the annual plush show in Seattle hosted by Schmancy. Like last year, gallery hanahou is also presenting plushes by a selection of Japanese artists whose work is rarely seen outside of Japan. In addition, plushes by many of last year's participants are coming back: one-of-a-kind work by Christina Gordon of JamFancy, Heidi Kenney of My Paper Crane, Anna Chambers, Blythe Church, and many more! Plushes will be available for purchase and immediate take-home at the opening party on December 4, 6-9 pm. Come early to nab an armful, or order from galleryhanahou.com for your hug-able holiday gifts!
