Cardkits Launch Show
World’s Fair Gallery presents Cardkits Toys!
Join World’s Fair Gallery to celebrate the launch of Cardkits, a line of beautiful paper toys created by designer and educator Anther Kiley. Inspired by Anther’s childhood creations, Cardkits create captivating miniature environments that invite kids (or anyone!) to explore systems and relationships through play. On view will be prototypes of the toys, as well as a series of unique collaborations with artists, designers, and architects. The show previews and celebrates Cardkits’ upcoming launch on Kickstarter, on September 17.
Cocktails and snacks by Little Bitte Artisanal Cocktails. The exhibition will be on view September 14–18.
World’s Fair Gallery specializes in pairing 2D and 3D artists with vessel makers predominantly working in Providence, Rhode Island, greater New England and New York. Committed to hosting a safe space to present artists and their many disciplines, the gallery engages the community by collaborating with local artists, chefs, activists, musicians, academics, writers and other mighty movers and shakers at the intersection of art, taste and design. World’s Fair Gallery was founded by artist and curator Willa Van Nostrand in 2010 and is located at 268 Broadway next to The Columbus Theatre, with a pop-up gallery at 233 Westminster Street through September 2019.
