No, its not too early to be thinking about the holidays! Here is an opportunity for you to share your love of miniatures with a wider community this December.
Last fall, Susan Sherman introduced herself to me, expressing an interest in visiting IGMA’s Williamsburg Study Program and meeting our participants. Susan is the Manager of Special Events at Historic Kenmore Plantation, and coordinator of a substantial holiday miniatures display at the beautifully restored home of George Washington’s sister. Anchored by a replica of Historic Kenmore, 2017 marks the fourth year that the display has taken place, enhanced by structures and individual miniatures loaned by the surrounding miniatures community.
The public is invited to loan dollhouses or other miniature buildings, favorite pieces or vignettes from their collections, display cases are available to protect smaller items, and each exhibitor will receive a free pass for themselves and two guests to the exhibit and other holiday festivities organized by the Foundation.
Care will be taken to properly protect your treasures, the exhibits will be monitored and stanchions will be in place to prevent enchanted viewers from getting too close. Pieces must be delivered and picked up by exhibitors. Interested parties are invited download the registration form below and submit it to Ms. Sherman. There is no time to waste, registration deadline is October 13.
