2011 Seaside Gallery Miniature Show


Once again, I am participating in Seaside Gallery's 20th Annual International Miniature Art Show in Nags Head, North Carolina. This great show is a favorite of mine. I love the way they handle the artists' work and their presentation of the entire show online. They are a very organized gallery. I am notified by email when my work arrives along with a list of the work, each given a number. I was always impressed with the way they presented the work in their online gallery, but now they have a new web site and it's even better! Not only can you click on the work and it will enlarge, but if you click on the details, it tells you the artist's name and where they're from, and also shows a thumbnail of the work in it's frame. When you click on the thumbnail, that view will also enlarge. The clarity of the image is perfect AND you can put it in your cart and buy it online! I shipped my work with Clip-N-Ship, USPS on Monday, got conformation that it was received today, Wednesday and a few hours later, it's up on their website! Click on Always Illuminated, Bright-eyed and Bushy-tailed or Gold and Glory to see the work on Seaside's online gallery. You can see all the work in this fabulous miniature show HERE. Thanks Seaside!

Seaside Art Gallery is located in the beautiful Outer Banks of Nags Head, North Carolina. This is their 50th Anniversary of being in this location. The show runs from April 30th through June 4th, 2011, however, the exhibition starts when the work is received. There are approximately 600 works by artists from all over the world and it is one of the top 5th national miniature shows! There will be an awards reception on Saturday May 28th from 7 to 9PM. Wish I could be there! Hope if you are in the area, you will go see this great show!

Congrats on this show, Barb. I love that "Always Illuminated" piece and recently bought a set (Barnes & Noble) that has calligraphy pens, inks, paints and paint to do illuminated pieces. Course, I haven't found the time to dig into yet, but I so love illuminated manuscripts that I just can't wait to do something with it.

Thanks Janie and Sherry.

I look forward to seeing what you come up with when you get the time, Sherry. I've always love the illuminated letters too.
