2013 Miniature Masterpieces and More! Show - Tsuga Gallery

It's that time of year for the Miniature Masterpieces and More! invitational exhibit at *Tsuga Fine Art Gallery in Bothell. This year I have two in the Small Works Category and three in the Miniature Category.  *(formally Kaewyn Gallery)

Small Works Category

Graphite and Mixed Media on Film 3 3/8" x 5 3/8"

Graphite and Mixed Media on Film 3 3/8" x 5 3/8"

I know that many would consider my two small works above as miniatures.  However, as a member of several Miniature Art Societies, I follow the guidelines of these Societies.  I consider work that is under 25 inches square, done with attention to detail, with a 1/6 scale and fine rendering to be a miniature work of art.  The two above, even if they are under 25" square and done with much detail, are framed larger and just do not fit in the miniature category!   If you are curious and wish to read or learn more about miniature art and the miniature art societies, you can do so on the following links.

The above are my miniature works in the show.  The Miniature Masterpieces and More! show opens on Friday, December 6th and runs through January 11th.   Tsuga Fine Art Gallery is located in beautiful downtown Bothell at 10101 Main Street (google map).They are open Tuesday - Thursday 10 to 6, Friday 10 - 5 and Saturday 10 - 4.  It is my 7th year participating in this fine invitational show.  Each year I am amazed by all the beautiful work in the show.  I hope you get a chance to see it.  All work is for sale.  These small and miniature artworks make wonderful gifts that will be lasting treasures.  Support your local businesses and your local artists!  Thank you for taking the time to read about my work.  Happy Holidays to all of my blogger friends and friends to be!

* Tsuga Fine Art Gallery will be updating their website for this show soon.
