14th Annual Miniatures Show !!

14th Annual Miniatures Show !!

Our Beloved Miniatures Show has arrived!    CALL US TO PURCHASE: 828-281-2134, we are happy to answer questions, too.  We will also be monitoring emails, but a phone call is your best bet.

As a respite from the Winter Blues, and just in time for Valentine’s Day, we celebrate the mighty power of the miniature!

The size limit for the artwork is 9 x 7 inches [before framing].  We do recommend having a tape measure handy!

The show continue until February 22nd, 2018.

In Ellie Ali’s words: I always enjoy a challenge, EVERYTHING about painting is a challenge. In a good way. It is difficult to transpose a large work to a small scale and vice versa. When I work small I am just telling the story with fewer words.  And in life, that makes everyone happy, I think.

AND, DO CHECK OUT EACH OF THESE ARTIST’S INDIVIDUAL PAGES FOR MORE EXAMPLES OF THEIR GENIUS.
