Student Space Gallery Exhibition: The Toy Store by Matthew Famularo

March 21, 2022 – April 15, 2022
Gateway Galleries
1601 W Mount Royal Ave
"Mushroom Head", 2020, Matthew Famualro

The exhibition by Matthew Famularo will be on view from March 21 - April 15 in the Gateway Gallery.  Join us for the opening reception March 25, 2022 from 5–7:00PM. This collection is a series of conceptual toys designed to resemble those of traditional soft vinyl toy productions of the early 60's and 70's. Many such soft vinyl toys were modeled in Japan, and featured various heroes and monsters from "villain-of-the-week" serialized TV programs. The pieces were 3D rendered, with material choices such as plastic and felt, and shot in a TV-set lighting style, to cement the idea that these works could be from an era a lot older than today. This is a Student Space Gallery exhibition. For more information about the SSG program and how to apply for a solo-exhibition, please visit
