Miniature Masterworks: William R. Robertson

A childhood spent visiting the Smithsonian Institution gave William R. Robertson a lifelong love of history and art that he has applied to the world of miniatures. His furniture, tool boxes, and mechanical instruments reflect his interest in seventeenth- and eighteenth-century American, English, Dutch, and French decorative arts. Robertson enjoys the challenge of making complex, functioning pieces that require hours of historical research and specially made tools.

Robertson is one of more than sixty artists participating in Miniature Masterworks, September 15-17, 2017.

Goodman is one of more than sixty artists participating in Miniature Masterworks, September 15-17, 2017.

Miniature Masterworks: Peter Gabel

Peter Gabel creates 1:12 scale botanically correct paper plants and flowers. He works with artist-grade acrylic paints and acid-free paper so his pieces will continue to make a big statement on a small scale for decades to come. Recently, he added seashell work to his repertoire, taking inspiration from nineteenth-century sailor’s valentines and shell floral arrangments under glass domes.

Gabel is one of more than sixty artists participating in Miniature Masterworks, September 15-17, 2017.
