April 4, 2020

Today would mark what would have been day 1 of our 40th annual show, wouldn't it be of the current COVID-19 situation.  The 40th annual show will be delayed quite a bit but in those times of social distancing, miniature is a perfect escapade!  Many visitors are telling us all the time that our exhibition room is sparking up their imagination and fueling them ideas for the year to come.  One of them, Marilyn Driscol from New Brunswich, suggested that we may post pictures of some of our MEMbers exhibits in some sort of a "virtual exhibit" for everyone's pleasure.  Some members are raising up to the challenge and we will post their work on that page throughout the weekend as well as in the next few days...  Come back often to visit the blog as content will be uploaded as received.

Attic of the Hungerford Manor by Michèle Castonguay

The Hungerford Manor is a 26-rooms Georgian Manor that can be worked as individual rooms or as the full manor.  The 1:48 kits have been designed by Gayle Baillargeon and are available at Petworth Miniatures.  Michèle has some plans to expose the whole manor in the future.  In the meantime, this is a sneak a peak to the attic floor that is now complete.

 

 The center attic is comprised of maid rooms, utility and storage rooms.

 The East Wing represents the quarters of an old aunt of the family while the West wing is the children bedroom and playroom.

Looking forward to see the rest of the manor in a future show!  Thank you Michèle!

Art Deco Vignette by Erica Laptiste

Erica is submitting a new exhibit to this virtual show: a 1:12 scale vignette based on an Art Deco poster by George Barbier called La Paresse.

The result is spectacular!!  Thank you Erica!

Sitting Room by Inge Cossette

Inge presents us this wonderful vignette with lots of details.  The tapertry work is home-made by Inge herself.  The dolls are also so well-done and respecting the era.

 

Very nice!! Thank you Inge!!

Porch by Joanne Daigneault

One of the thing we wanted to push forward this year for our 40th anniversary was to display some of our first exhibits to see the evolution of the club through time.  Joanne is presenting an exhibit she first put in 2007.

 

Love the festive decorations!  We often see "corner displays" for indoor scenes but rarely for outdoors.  Great work!  Thank you Joanne!
