This Week in Miniatures
Welcome to the latest WEEkly round up of the latest news and reports from the MiniWorld! (Photo: Adrian Sonderegger & Jojakim Cortis)
Our latest exhibition caused more than a little trouble this past week when BadAss Miniaturist Kim Clough from @Bizarro_Sculpt posted her work on DeviantArt, the popular art site. The site removed her post just three days later!
Additionally, the Green Panda Dispensary by Amanda Kelly from Panda Miniatures has caused one of our followers to un-follow (in dramatic fashion) resulting in a torrent of comments (mostly in support of the show!).
Our latest exhibition BadAss Miniatures – Causing a Little Trouble is on view by appointment through July 22 in Yonkers, New York. For a full details, along with additional images from the show, head here.
Miniature Guild Artisans go BadAss
We're excited to have a number of IGMA artisans (International Guild of Miniature Artisans) who have made contribution to our latest exhibition BadAss Miniatures including Guild Fellows Brooke Rothshank and Carolyn Nygren Curran and Guild Artisans Michael Yurkovic and Susan Van Tubbergen. Work by these talented artisans may be seen here.
Meet Miniaturist Jason
Jason is a miniaturist who makes tiny houses. His autism doesn't limit him or stop him from creating awesome houses and interiors in small scale. We like Jason!
Miniature Spaces On View
Susan Leopold creates miniatures rooms and spaces drawing from personal experience. Take a look at some of her previous work which was show recently at the Elizabeth Harris Gallery in NYC.
Iconic Photographs Recreated in Miniature
Several very famous photographs have been recreated in painstaking detail by team Cortis & Sonderegger in this piece from CNN Styles.
