Only microsculptor in the world

If you saw this past CBS Sunday Morning show, you would have been impressed, as I was, by the microsculptor, Willard Wigan, from Birmingham, England.  He is currently showing his minute sculptures of people through microscopes.  For example, he sculpted Charlie Chaplin on the end of a human eyelash using a microscope to create it.  Wigan, currently, is the only artist in the world who does microscopic sculpting and strives to make even tinier sculptures.  He is now introducing his works in the US market which go for over a $100,000 for each sculpture and is exhibiting in the Atlanta Art Gallery.

New Hampshire also has many artists, including talented photographers, across the state who mainly capture the surrounding natural beauty of the White Mountains, rivers, lakes, and countryside.  It's not an uncommon sight to see them sketching or photographing The Presidentials on the White Mountain Highway in North Conway.  Some of these artistic works can be viewed in the White Mountain Artisans Gallery, The Underground Gallery, or the Mt. Washington Valley Visual Arts Center, to name a few.  

In fact, we are displaying and selling several photographs of the Mt. Washington Valley area taken by a guest from California, Jeffrey Aiello, who stayed during Fall Foliage.  If you visit The Buttonwood Inn, you can view or purchase his work from us or go directly to his website, Jeffrey Aiello Photography, and look in the Portfolio for New England.
