Reception for Vance Alexander's Miniature Display

Sunday, December 29, 2019

Because of his career working in the fields of architectural, industrial, and interior design, Vance Alexander had an easy transition into creating miniatures. He has been an avid collector of small items for nearly 60 year. Being retired has given him the chance to express himself in construction of room boxes. Having traveled to Europe many times on business and pleasure, and being an enthusiastic student of the decorative arts; it was only natural to be influenced by what he saw. The rooms he creates are always in "the style of" rather than true to the period, allowing creative freedom. Most of the objects in his rooms are made by hand using, wood, clay, glass, paint, found objects, and bits and pieces donated from friends. The only items purchased, or taken from his collection are things he cannot make, such as glass and metal objects. His greatest pleasure is displaying and sharing the rooms, and seeing the look of wonder in both children and adults.
