Serendipity is defined as the effect by which one accidentally discovers something fortunate, especially while looking for something entirely unrelated. The exhibition will showcase the work of Clarke Dunham Studio with a complete small-scale train set. Dunham is well known for his fantastic trains and landscapes exhibited at Citi Corps in New York City. Miniatures by artists Sandra Mirque and Susan Farni will be seen along with the work of many other talented regional contributors including Rockland clay artist Rosemary Aiello.
The curator this year is Joanne Potanovic.
