Miniature Show 2014 at Strathmore Hall

Ever year, The Miniature Painters, Sculptors and Gravers Society of Washington, DC hosts its annual show at Strathmore Hall in Bethesda, Md.  Artists are allowed to submit 3 entries.  It is a juried show so no one is guaranteed to get in.  Luckily, I got all 3 of my entries accepted!  

The paintings that are entered are tiny.  My Georgetown painting is 3 inches by 4 inches. The crab painting is 6 inches by 7 inches and the cat painting is 6 inches by 8 inches (and for the watercolors, that includes the mat!  So the paintings are actually smaller than that.)

If you have never seen the miniature show, it's worth seeing.  The paintings that are entered are incredible.  Strathmore Hall is located at 10701 Rockville Pike, Bethesda, Md.  It's open Tuesday through Sunday from 10-4 .  On Wednesdays, it's open 10-9.  The show runs through January 4, so if you are looking for something fascinating to do over the holidays, go see this show.  You won't regret it.  I'm always blown away by what artists do with such tiny brushes!
