NJ sketchers at Morris Museum

Join us to sketch at Morris Museum

Flames, trains, and automata!

A day of flame working demos, a big model train exhibit, and musical mechanical automation.

NJ artist Paul J. Stankard’s revolutionary approach to flameworking and realistic botanical representations has elevated the humble paperweight to fine art.

As part of the Flame to Flower exhibit the Corning Museum of Glass will be presenting live presentations of glassworking.

The Mega Model Train Exhibit 

The nearly 300-square-foot train set is an ever-changing work of art surrounded by incredibly detailed and whimsical scenes. 

The Guinness Collection of Music and Automata

The 750 piece collection spans a miniature music box that fits into an 18-karat gold ring to the enormous Poppers “Rex” Orchestrion, which plays a whole orchestra of instruments and is powered by a complex pneumatic system that is over 100 years old.
