      This unique art form, based on a minute scale, traces its roots back to the book paintings and illuminated manuscripts set in the 7th century. A work of fine art in miniature is a particularly personal object that draws the viewer into an intimate, concentrated little world that is breathtaking in its execution.

      Every single detail is miniaturized –the scale of the subject matter, the brush or pencil strokes – so that only with high magnification can one behold the immaculate details of the artist’s technique which may include stippling, hatching, or pointillism. These techniques are a specialized means of producing a perfect balance of color and detail in a series of thinly applied layers of exquisite color intended to reflect light. The miniatures show a high standard of design and the artist’s mastery of the chosen media and palette.

      Works in this exhibition were limited a image size of 25 sq. inches.
