Scaled to Perfection: A Gallery of New Miniatures
October 12, 2018 — May 31, 2019
The KSB Miniatures Collection is celebrating ten years with an exciting eight-month-long exhibition featuring hundreds of newly acquired miniatures. The exposition will highlight some of the most extraordinary examples of fine-scale art to come available in years. Work from legendary artisans of the past and present will be represented, as well as pieces from talented new artisans, displayed on 43 freestanding lit pedestals and in houses and wall cases. Work includes items from every category including textiles, porcelain, fine-art reproductions and precious metals. In addition, several structures—old and new—will debut along with outstanding pieces purchased from the Miniature Masterworks show in Kansas City.
- Savage Manor by Mulvany & Rogers, depicting how Kaye’s ancestors’ 16th century English home may have appeared
- Never-before-displayed pieces by Noel and Pat Thomas include The Whittier, a craftsman bungalow once owned by collector Sarah Salisbury and Megler Landing, an elaborately detailed Victorian.
- The historic Paul Revere House, Folly Cove and Davidson Shop in Williamsburg by the late Pam Throop, as well as Stonewood Cottage by Ron and April Gill, will also debut along with a distinguished law office by Ashby & Jedd and A Tribute to Browning Manufacturing by Bill Robertson.
