“PLANES,TRAINS,BOATS & LIGHTHOUSES”
NOVEMBER 17- DECEMBER 8, 2013
The Martin Hicks Gallery at the Belskie Museum of Art, Closter, N.J. proudly presents a unique exhibition of handmade model planes, trains, boats and lighthouses. Most of the models have been built primarily from scratch and are in scale. The ship models range from small in bottles to two magnificent 7 ft. scratch built working replicas of the WWII ships “BISMARCK” AND “HMSHOOD.” Many of the boat modelers are recipients of high awards for their work in exhibits throughout the United States. There are well over a dozen boat models, a 4 ft high lighthouse, a 1920’s working train set, and numerous plane models of all sizes and types.
In addition to the models on display there are four participating artists–Odd Andersen, Mary Ann Farrell, Scott Farrell and LidaenisFerro– whose paintings and photography reflect the same theme of the exhibit and are available for purchase.
This is an exhibit for all ages, young and old, and captures the very essence of these great American Pastimes.
