33rd Annual Miniature & Dollhouse Exhibit

November 16, 2008

Sunday, November 16, 2008, was the opening of our very popular annual Miniature & Dollhouse exhibit. Curated by Joanne Potanovic, the show ran through March 1, 2009. This popular show featured two galleries of antique pedal cars, dollhouses, dolls, miniatures and other treats for the child in all of us --showcasing:
  • fabulous pedal cars by James Hopper of Florida, NY, formerly of Pomona, NY
  • fantastic and surreal collage works by Rockland photographer Ned Harris of New City, NY
  • maquetts of giant puppets from a production of Cinderella and The Prince Who Slays the Magic Dragon at Lincoln Center
  • beautiful quilts by Mary Jane Sexton of New City, NY
  • handmade dolls by Pat Mott of New City, NY
Items from the HSRC's own collections included original “Betty Bonnet” paper dolls from before WWI -- under the watchful gaze of Betty Bonnet & her family, children of all ages were able to create their own paper doll and clothes using supplied templates, crayons and colored pencils.

Not to be missed were the wonderfully crafted dollhouses and room boxes from:
  • Carolyn McErlean
  • ZsuZsa Neff
  • Victoria Losicco
  • Viola Koch
  • Delia Tolz
  • Gladys Vasquez
and the work of many other talented regional contributors.
