This fall, I managed to submit three paintings to the Annual Miniature Painters, Sculptors and Gravers Society Exhibit. All three miniature oils were accepted! On the down side, none were award winners. It’s ok, though. I’ve won many awards over the years, and these miniature exhibits provide some of the toughest competition ever. The talented Dean Mitchell won Best In Show. He seems to be in just about every exhibit I get in and a consistent winner… well deserved! (He graduated from the same art college my son attended: Columbus College of Art and Design.)
The three paintings I am exhibiting are the Luna Park oils and “Foxden and Hemlock” which is 3″x3″ on copper.
The exhibit will take place in North Bethesda, Maryland, just outside of Washington DC. You are all invited to attend the opening reception. It’s well worth the trip; I guarantee it is like no other art exhibit you have ever been to,(unless you’ve been to the national exhibit with the Miniature Art Society of Florida.)
There are 282 contributing artists in this exhibit, each has submitted two or three works. Imagine browsing through a room full of 700 tiny jewel-like paintings!
If you have any questions about the exhibit, the organization, or possibly lodgings during the show, go to the MPSGS website. Hope to see you there. If you are unable to attend, please visit their website after the exhibit date where you may view all the award winning works. Tip… have a magnifying glass handy!
