Join us for an afternoon at the Hudson River Museum on Saturday, December 9th from 3:00-4:30pm - - we'll be giving a talk on the History of Miniatures and the fixation some of us (who me???) have with these tiny treasures.  We'll then move on to a private tour of Nybelwyck Hall, the extraordinary dollhouse on permanent view at the museum.   Free with general admission. Plan your visit and purchase tickets online here. Visit hrm.org for more information.

 

Miniaturist Spotlight: James Opher

Miniaturist James Opher "breathes new life" into heirloom dollhouses using reclaimed materials and a little DIY magic.  See his work on display at Historic Kenmore in Fredericksburg, Virginia as part of its annual “A Wee Christmas at Kenmore,” dollhouse and miniatures show. Head here for the full story  about Mr. Opher.  For details and tickets to the show, go to Kenmore.org.
