How Do You See God? 2017

“How Do You See God?“ is an exhibition that asks our artists to share their thoughts and beliefs through unique works of art. It is open to all faiths and beliefs, as well as all media, all ages, and 2D or 3D works. Each year, we photograph all of the art that is included in the exhibit and create a book with the artists and images. The book will be available by the second reception.

6th ANNUAL JUDGED MINIATURES ART SHOW 2017

DEFINITION: Miniature paintings and sculptures are fine art on a small scale, with minute attention to detail, which can withstand close inspection or enlargement. As a guideline (not a rule) for a general definition of small scale, a subject should be no larger than 1/6th actual size. A human head is about 9 inches so the painted head should be no larger than 1½”. Subjects too small for portrayal in 1/6th scale or nonrepresentational work such as abstracts or surrealism may meet the spirit of a miniature if the work meets the above definition of miniature art.
