China dolls. Antique dolls. Baby dolls. Dolls! Think you’re too old to play? No way. Challenge your concept of the ubiquitous childhood symbol when Santa Fe gets a whopping gathering of more than 200 of ‘em this weekend. The second exhibit to open at the Pablita Velarde Museum of Indian Women in the Arts, the exhibit features 2-D and 3-D works. Drawn from the idea of the annual Gathering of the Nations pow-wow that intersects Native identity and iconology with cultural symbols, the exhibit ranges from specially commissioned contemporary dolls to skookums and antiques that dateback to the 1800s. Though classic Native American Barbies are included in the collection, curator and director of the museum, Amber-Dawn Bear Robe, says the materials used range, from “clay to canvas to rawhide, wood, cloth,” and everywhere in between.

Gathering of the Dolls: 3-6 pm, Saturday, Nov. 30. $5. Pablita Velarde Museum, 213 Cathedral Place, 988-8900
