DOCK VIEW GALLERY - Robert Callahan "Miniatures"

 Robert Callahan, "Small Reflections" 

Opening Fri. Aug. 10, 2012, 6-8 pm, on exhibit  until Oct. 31

Robert Callahan established himself as a leader in the world of  miniatures early on in his career. Fashioning one inch scale  reproductions of period furniture and accessories his work was  featured in numerous publications including LIFE magazine. Recognized  by collectors and museums for his precise detail, his work was added  to many collections around the world. Roberts recent work pays homage to those early years by painting  miniature landscapes of Cape Cod on antique ivory piano keys.  Using  scrimshaw, the traditional maritime art form, Robert creates fine  details in the work. He then painstakingly watercolors the sky, seas  and sands of the lower cape that he calls home.  Each work is unique  as the grain in the ivory reflects thru the paint. These miniature  works of art draw the observer in to them to take a closer look, just  as the Cape draws us to it.
