Dreher Masterworks

June 3, 2022 – May 29, 2023

Dreher Masterworks showcases more than 115 carvings authored by four generations of Dreher family carvers. These exquisitely detailed carvings of animals including toads, mice, fish and birds are carved from crystals of ruby, sapphire, topaz, garnet, jasper and agate. These are among the most highly sought masterpieces of contemporary lapidary art.

The pieces included in this exhibition were assembled from several private collections across North America and Europe, many of which have never before been on public display. This exhibition pays homage to the lapidary enclave of Idar-Oberstein, Germany, the Dreher family of carvers and the museums and collectors who preserve their legacy.

Entrance to this exhibit requires special admission.
