Kay Browning:  Kay is an avid collector of miniatures, and currently serves as the Miniature Curator at the Kentucky Gateway Museum Center located in Maysville,  Kentucky, which is  just outside of Cincinnati, Ohio. The museum collection contains evidence of her many years of astute collecting and collaboration with many of the best artisans in the world. The museum collection includes miniature e rooms and furniture from
the finest artisans in the  world including Kevin Mulvany, Susie Rogers, the Kupjack Studios and William Robertson, who also designed the installation.

The Kathleen Savage Browning collected museum quality miniatures of figurines, furnishings and buildings.

Her collection contains over 100 exhibits. Each piece is a 1/12 scale (one inch equals one foot) reproduction of the original item. She began her collecting in 1974 and donated it to the museum several years ago, after years of housing it at her home.  Today the collection is available to the public at the Kentucky Gateway Museum Center in Maysville Kentucky.

Now that the  miniatures collection has been completely installed, Kaye Browning was quoted as saying that she will continue to collect miniatures, but it will be with a focus on the little things that make a room or setting complete.

The Kentucky Gateway Museum Center is located at 215 Sutton Street, Maysville; hours of operation are Tuesday through Friday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.; Saturday 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.; and Sunday 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. Telephone number 606-564-5865,
