Local Artist Christie Anderson Showcases New Exhibition at The Peeler Art Galleries

February 14, 2024

Greencastle, Ind. – Local artist Christie Anderson is excited to present her latest exhibition, "A Journey in Miniature," at The Peeler Art Galleries. The exhibition, which features Anderson's unique artwork in the form of miniature environments, will be on display from Jan. 29 to June 30, 2024.

Anderson's exhibition offers a glimpse into her world of miniature creations. Her intricate dioramas, built on a 1/6th scale, invite viewers into another realm where dollhouse dolls, measuring approximately 11-1/2 inches tall, interact within meticulously crafted rooms. These rooms serve as immersive spaces that reflect a different reality, providing a much-needed escape for viewers during challenging times.

With a keen eye for detail and a flair for styles such as kawaii and goth, Anderson's dioramas transport viewers to faraway places where they can create their own narratives. Her use of various materials, including wood, plastic, paper, and mass-produced miniatures, adds depth and authenticity to each scene. The exhibition showcases Anderson's skillful craftsmanship and her ability to transform everyday objects into miniature wonders.

A passionate collector and player of dolls, Anderson found solace and connection through social media platforms, particularly Instagram. She became part of a community that shared her love for dolls and miniatures, leading her to embark on the journey of creating dioramas. Her exhibition at The Peeler Art Galleries is a testament to the power of art as a form of escapism and self-expression.

Join Anderson for an Artist Talk on Tuesday, March 12, 2024, at 11:45 a.m. at the Peeler Art Center, University Gallery (upper level). This event will provide insights into Anderson's creative process and offer attendees an opportunity to interact with the artist herself. Can’t make it in person?  Anderson will also be conducting an Instagram Live Artist Talk on Thursday, March 22, 2024, at 12 p.m. www.instagram.com/kickthetires
