Adult and teen artists who study with Sue Hand will exhibit their “Tiny Treasures” and miniatures (small art works in drawing and painting media) on April 5, 6 and 7 at Sue Hand’s Imagery, 35 Main St., Dallas, during the studio’s Spring Exhibit.
Miniature art is one of the oldest and most respected art techniques of the Western world, originally used as the forerunner of today’s digital camera to produce portraits and capture memories.
The exhibit will include miniature landscapes, seascapes, still lifes, animals and figure studies. Over two dozen of the artworks include small works and miniatures of The Lands at Hillside Farms and other local landmarks. Hand will exhibit miniatures in oil, acrylic and watercolor. A wide range of additional compositions will be exhibited by teen and adult students.
The largest artworks are a mere 5X7 inches in size. The smallest are one-inch square. Visitors may wish to bring along a magnifying glass to view the display!
Studio hours are 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Thursday and Friday, April 5 and 6; and 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday, April 7.
