Famous miniatures artist at CAH
LEWISTON, Idaho - Robert Olszewski, nationally known for his work with miniatures, will present "The Art of Miniatures" from 2 - 3:30 p.m. on Saturday, March 24, 2012 at the Lewis-Clark State College Center for Arts and History. Admission is free.
In 1979, at the age of 34, Olszewski was brought under exclusive contract with the major European porcelain company, Goebel, maker of the world famous M.I. Hummel figurines, and was co-founder of the Goebel Miniatures Studios. In 1993, a 30-year museum retrospective of his work was mounted at the Carnegie Art Museum in Oxnard, California, and in the same year he was named "International Collectible Artist of the Year."
In 1995, he was commissioned by the Walt Disney Company and has continued to work with them since to create prototype designs and scaled replicas.
The exhibit will include items from Olszewski's "Gallery of Light", "PokitPals", "Disney Main Street" and "Heirloom Box" collections.
Special thanks for the exhibit goes to Lewis-Clark State College supporter and local Olszewski art collector, Larry Mills.
