This exhibition celebrated the creativity of the artists, craftspeople, and collectors of the miniatures, dollhouses. and art that grace our museum galleries. 

On display are handmade dollhouses created this past summer at Rockland Center for the Arts by students Susan Langone, Ethan Canter, Kersten Savage, Cate Ievolella, Molly Ievolella, Lily Rose Weber, and Juliana Pekak. See how "found objects" become art!

Another truly creative artist whose colorful
tunnel books, dioramas. and drawings were on exhibit is Shoshana Spencer, a college art student and granddaughter of the Rockland artist Ned Harris.

Dollhouses and dolls were on loan from Caren Pane, Michelle Lundemo, Kimberly Milliard, and Dorothie Flieger. Once again, we displayed the art quilts made by Mary Jane Sexton, Debbie Calyo, and Maria Weinstein. They and the very talented members of their quilting guild, the Heritage Quilters of the Hudson Palisades, donated a beautiful quilt that was raffled to benefit The Historical Society of Rockland County.
