It’s that time of year when some of the nation’s top galleries mount stunning exhibitions in which the skill is large but the format is small. Check out these miniature masterpieces from Evergreen Fine Art in Colorado.
A world of small beauties making big impacts will soon be on view at Evergreen Fine Art in Evergreen, Colorado. Opening on November 19 is the gallery’s annual Miniature Masterpieces show, which features many of the nation’s top painters and sculptors working today. As the gallery correctly suggested, “Miniature Masterpices offers a rare opportunity to marvel at the patience, concentration and immense skill needed to render a universe of beauty in less than 120 square inches.”
Coming into it’s seventh showing, the exhibition is also a fantastic opportunity for beginning collectors. Gallery Director Doug Kacena agrees, saying “It’s perfect for entry-level collectors who are just beginning to build their collections, and it’s a good opportunity for more established collectors to fill in the gaps in their collections. There’ll be several pieces by each artist, and one of the fun things about the show is that the themes and subjects are all over the board.” Indeed, among the subjects explored are all traditional cogs, including portraiture, still life, wildlife, landscape, and narrative.
Among many other notable names, artists included in the show are Walt Gonske, Robert Spooner, Pem Dunn, Dave Santillanes, Susiehyer, Keith Bond, Kevin Weckbach, Mai Wyn Schantz, and Kelli Folson.
Miniature Masterpieces 2016 opens on November 19 and will run through December 7. To learn more, visit Evergreen Fine Art.
