Jen Musatto and “Them Dollz” beginning stages

  • by

Just like any project, proper planning comes into play. With Jen Musatto “Them Dollz”, it takes figuring out the right patterns and arrangement to create the perfect doll.

JMWIP1Jen takes her time to pick out the proper fabric and pattern when putting together her perfect creations. Her dolls are a fluid combination of movement and patterns in a rag style, which composes a story all their own! We get to see Jen laying out some styles here before she gets sewing and stuffing. The finished products will be available soon, and we will most definitely bring you the scoop.

Jen’s Project Room exhibit will run December 6th – 29th, with an opening reception on Friday, December 6th from 6 – 9 PM.

December Project Room: Jen Musatto

  • by


Jen Musatto creates “Them Dollz”, a line of handcrafted plush dolls that evoke a broken and gloomy image of childhood where innocence and the longing for companionship take a most unusual form.

Musatto’s dolls are immediately unsettling, but give the viewer room to slowly bond with them over time. Made from a combination of new and found materials, Musatto’s “Them Dollz” figures are each wholly unique and provide a fresh, if slightly creepy, voice in modern plush art.

Jen’s Project Room exhibit will run December 6th – 29th, with an opening reception on Friday, December 6th from 6 – 9 PM.

A first look at Bewitching III

  • by

We are gearing up for third annual installment of Bewitching at Stranger Factory. This highly anticipated group show happens every October, and the lineup this year is once again phenomenal, so sit back while we slowly roll out the ghosts, ghouls, and Halloween-esque works leading up to opening night.

jasperpumpkinview2.comUp first, we are proud to show you Jasper Pumpkin by the talented Jen Musatto aka Them DollzJen is no stranger (pun intended) to our misfit world and will be also have a solo show at Stranger Factory in December. An exquisite master in the plush arts, she is a perfect fit for Bewitching!

Jasper is decked out in his Halloween colors and top hat and is ready to frighten all the trick or treaters even if he can’t say much. He isn’t a small fry either because he is 26″ long, 8″ wide at his head, and 4.5″ thick of pure pumpkin! Stick him next to the candy dish or the pumpkin patch, because that is where he feels most at home.
We will have more from Jen and many more of the artists in Bewitching III before the show opens October 11th, so keep an eye out right here.
