6th Annual Miniature Fine Art Show at Artistic Designs Gallery

This weekend is the opening of the 6th Annual Miniature Fine Art Show at Artistic Designs Gallery in Brownsburg, Indiana. (map) This is another new venue for me.  I have three fine art miniature paintings,  A Walk in the Woods, Catchin' Some Rays, and Patience, all bird paintings in the show.  The judging of the work this year will be done by Wes and Rachelle Siegrist, who will also be teaching a workshop on miniature painting and signing their books.

The show features a world-class exhibit of fine art miniatures and small works. There will be a variety of media from renowned artists from across the United States as well as Internationally.  All of the work is minute in scale, high in quality, exquisitely detailed and available for purchase. A list of the artists can be found on Artistic Designs' Blog.  You can view the works in the show by clicking here at Artistic Design's Website.

In addition to the Miniature Fine Art Exhibit, The Miniature Artists of America’s Traveling Exhibition (MAA) will be on displayThis elegant exhibit has been prepared to be shown as an educational tool and contains 35 juried works by 35 Signature artist members. These works have been painted by some of the foremost miniaturists in the United States, England, Canada, and South Africa. Works in this exhibit are not available for purchase.  I do not have work in the Traveling Exhibition yet, but will when this exhibit changes works, now that I am a signature member!  I'm still deciding which work I want to represent me, since the exhibition travels. 

The 6th Annual Miniature Fine Art Show opens Saturday July 14th, and runs through Saturday August 25th. Admission is free for all visitors, and you can stop in to see these tiny works of art any time through August 25 during Artistic Designs Gallery business hours which can found on their website:  Sounds like a great show, I wish I could be there!  If you are anywhere near this area during this time, it would be a great opportunity to see both of these fine exhibits together!
