Open House Celebration of New Works by IGMA Fellow and Wildlife Miniaturist Beth Freeman-Kane Sunday
Join us on Sunday, October 16 from 3-5pm at D. Thomas Fine Miniatures for a celebration of new works by wildlife miniaturist Beth Freeman-Kane. This is a great chance to meet the artist and review her latest works on exhibition in the Gallery.
A lifelong resident of South Africa, Freeman-Kane (a fellow of the International Guild of Miniature Artisans and signature member of the Miniature Artists of America) creates miniatures utilizing sculpture, painting techniques and mixed media elements that offer a unique view of nature.
“Little things matter!” she says. “My artwork celebrates the significance of small things most often overlooked in nature and I invite the viewer to reinvest attention in the seemingly unworthy or unremarkable.”
In this special exhibit, Ms. Freeman-Kane presents a 1/12th scale miniature scene depicting life both sustained and renewed by unique ecosystem provided by the mighty Hudson River. Her piece features a Belted Kingfisher and a pair of Pectoral Sandpipers resting atop the waters of the Hudson while beneath the water level live various indigenous tiny fish, crabs and frogs. The scene also features several Dragonflies very often observed in the Hudson River Valley, home to the largest number of different dragonfly species in the US.
This will be a special afternoon so we hope you can join us! Kindly call 914-231-9871 or send us an email and RSVP.
