For the 2011-2012 exhibition, we are celebrating the creativity of miniatures, dollhouses & art. We are very proud to have the handmade dollhouses created over this past summer at the wonderful Rockland Center for the Arts. Given by educator Daly Flanagan and artist Andre Voumard, we will showcase pieces made by: Susan Langone, Ethan Canter, Kersten Savage, Cate Ievolella, Molly Ievolella, Lily Rose Weber and Juliana Pekak. Come and see how "found objects" become art!
In keeping with this year's celebration of creativity, we are very proud to have these talented contributors to this highly anticipated show, including well-known Rockland artists: - ceramic artist Rosemary Aiello
