2017 European Professional Doll Art Festival in Riga

By | Events, news | No Comments

In September 2017 there will be a European Professional Doll Art Festival in Riga, Latvia for the fourth time. The Show is organized by Inara Liepa with help of her husband and her daughter Santa. The show is set up in a rail road Museum.

There are a few things that make this show so special: the personal choices that Inara put in this show, the special theme that allows Inara to add other art forms to the show, the beautiful displays on pedestals with plain backgrounds. NIADA is invited to present our organization in a special booth. The theme for the 2017 show is “On the wings of the wind”. A number of NIADA artists will be attending who will be announced shortly.

In 2016 the NIADA artists present there were EJ Taylor (Guest of honour), Marlaine Verhelst, Anna Zueva,  Tamara Pivnyuk and Natalja Pobedina.

The Riga Professional Art Doll Festival dates are – 14 September to 17 September, 2017
Latvian Railway History Museum, Uzvaras bulv. 2a
