Exhibit presents images of popular toys as a study in contrasts

"Lost Innocence" – a new exhibit by Rachel Bolen, a senior art major – uses photographic images of popular toys combined with textual elements to present perspectives that Bolen characterizes as "realistic and blunt." Her display will open November 6 at the university's Blackbridge Hall Gallery.

"After looking at some of the images and reading the text, the work will contradict some of the initial memories that we all had when we were younger," Bolen said. "These comments are intended to question society’s opinion of toys and the fantasy of toys."

"Lost Innocence" will be on display from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., Nov. 6 through Nov. 11. In addition, a gallery talk will be held at 1:30 p.m. on November 6, with a reception from 5-7 p.m.

The Blackbridge Hall Gallery is located on South Clarke Street on the campus of Georgia College and State University in Milledgeville. All of the events are free and open to the public.
