The Holiday Season is here and that means it's time for MF Gallery's Annual Toy Show!
But let's face it... Everyone's been pretty naughty, so in addition to the handmade toys this year, we will also be getting a visit from our horned friend The Krampus, with a show that interprets his folklore.

The MF Toy Show is a great place to see one-of-a-kind hand made art toys. From plush, to cast resin, wood, and paper toys, you'll always be sure to find something creepy, cute, and absolutely unique! Some of these artists work with toys as their usual medium, others were asked to create a toy just for the show. This year's show will include creations by: Nicole Johnson, Steve Casino, Renee Tay, Drew Maillard, Frank Russo, Sigal Arad Inbar, Moses Jaen, Bianca Panzram, Blaqlion3, Mike Nemo Mendez, Jen Miller, The Olive Knight, Scott Cherry, MF Toys & more...

Adding to this annual event is the introduction of the horned, half cloven Christmas Devil known as Krampus. Announcing himself with the sound of thrashing chains and bells, this “anti-Santa” comes to punish bad children by beating them with sticks. Part of a centuries-old Christmas tradition, the Krampus figure has been gaining popularity in recent years. Co-curated by Moses Jaen and Mike Nemo Mendez, The Krampus Art Show will include pieces by: Karikatura, Drew Maillard, Dos Diavlos, Tiffany Flanagan, Keith Ciaramello, Leigh Walls, Martina Secondo Russo, Perry J Osman, Paulino Figuerido, Jason Masarik, Jay Ferguson, Ryan Genovese, Johnny Desser, Alex McVey, Scott Kinnebrew, Den Ramos, Jed Leiknes, Luis Lamboy, Osiris Orion, Rolo Ledesma, Phil Young, Christopher Hernandez and Jason Chalker.

Join us on December 9th, (7-10pm) as we revel in both the good and bad aspects of the Yuletide Season at The Toy Show / Krampus Opening Reception! Many of the artists will be present, and there will be live sketch drawing by artist Rolo Ledesma. Refreshments will be served. Admission is free and open to all ages.

MF Gallery is located at 213 Bond Street, between Baltic and Butler Streets in the Gowanus neighborhood of Brooklyn. Take the F or G to Bergen St., the A or C to Hoyt/ Schermerhorn, or the R to Union.

The artwork can also be viewed and purchased online at: www.MFgallery.net

After opening night, these shows will be open by appointment until December 23rd.
