The historic Mansion at Strathmore opened three new exhibitions for the holiday season, including the annual miniature painting exhibit that the venue has presented for over 20 years.
“The annual Miniatures exhibition is a Strathmore tradition, and we once again look forward to sharing some of our area’s most compelling works of art,” said Lesley Morris, Director of Exhibitions at Strathmore in a statement. “Our other two artists on view will take our visitors on a tour around the world with a few familiar pieces that prompt us to slow down and enjoy our everyday lives.”
According to Morris, the exhibit “Fine Art in Miniature” has been displayed annually at the Mansion at Strathmore since 1997. The painting come from across the US, United Kingdom, Eastern Europe, and Africa and rang in size from no bigger than a playing card to as small as a postage stamp.
“This year’s exhibition is consistent with past years’ exhibiting landscapes, portraits, animals, abstracts, and florals, Morris told MyMCM. “The creativity of artists to capture details increases each year and just when you think you have seen the smallest pencil mark, or the tiniest brushstroke, you find artists can [create] even smaller than the previous year.”
