Awards at the Annual Judged Miniature Show

What a fun night!!! Thank you to everyone who came out to enjoy beautiful art and support the artists in the Miniature Show. It is always a difficult endeavor to choose only a few pieces from a collection of such beautiful work to receive awards, but we think our judge, Theresa Leasure, did a superb job. Thank you Theresa!!!

The exhibit will be on display until the end of September, so make sure you get in to see the pieces that won!

Also, don’t forget! We have some amazing sales on art this month! Up to 30% off select pieces!!!

Now, on to the awards. This year there were 4 categories: Painting, Drawing, Photography and Sculpture/3D. Painting included watercolors, mixed media, oil, and acrylic. Drawing included any drawing medium -graphite, colored pencil etc- and printmaking. Photography included digital art. We had to combine some categories to actually make it a competition.
