Robert Callahan established himself as a leader in the world of miniatures early on in his career. Fashioning one- inch scale reproductions of period furniture and accessories, his work was featured in numerous publications, including LIFE magazine. Recognized by collectors and museums for his precise detail, his work was added to many collections around the world.
Robert’s recent work pays homage to those early years. A diverse artist, he creates driftwood furniture, miniature watercolor landscapes on antique piano keys, and one-of-a-kind pieces of JOBI art pottery. He brings to each of those a love of history, the craft, as well as the attention to detail that he has been known for.
Robert is proud to be part of this year’s Truro Historical Society plate exhibition and auction. He’s again created a detailed work featuring the Race Point Lighthouse. A view from the water, it sits on shore, looking the same as it has to countless sailors, fishermen and tourists for generations. For more information, visit his website, www.callahancapecod.com.
