Miniature Masterworks: Pat Hartman

Miniature Masterworks: Pat Hartman

Pat Hartman has been making miniature needlework since she built her first dollhouse in 1977. She takes inspiration from the primitive designs and soft colors of the faded fabrics in antique hooked rugs. She challenges herself to get as much detail in each rug as possible; the more complex the design, the better the challenge.

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

Miniature Masterworks: Thomas and Catherine Latané

Miniature Masterworks: Thomas and Catherine Latané

Thomas and Catherine Latané recreate authentic historical works in tin, iron and wood by using traditional tools and techniques. Their prior experience in full-size construction adds to the realism and credibility of their work, which often bears the aged patina of time and weather.

The Latanes are among the more than sixty artists participating in Miniature Masterworks, September 15-17, 2017.

Miniature Masterworks: Jeffrey Guéno

Miniature Masterworks: Jeffrey Guéno

Jeffery G. Guéno often recreates fifteenth-century Italian maiolica as well as English and Dutch delft, but he has worked in a variety of styles and time periods. He usually works in 1:12 scale, but he has also made 1:6 scale pieces when there is too much detail to scale down. Guéno uses auction catalogs and museum collections to create authentic reproductions.

Guéno is one of more than sixty artists participating in Miniature Masterworks, September 15-17, 2017. He will be giving a gallery talk about his work in the T/m collection and the inspiration behind it on Sunday, September 17 at 11:30 am.
