Taking In- Miniature Show and more!

Taken in

The miniatures have come in for the 11th Annual National Miniature Exhibition.

Shea Ashworth and her
"Whimsical Airedale"
Friday, Saturday and Sunday saw a rush of artists into The Renaissance Art Gallery bringing this year’s show. Kept us hopping too! There are works from all over the country as well as our valleys. We filled the receiving table up 3 times with works of art.

Now the work of photographing, hanging and cataloging all this magnificent work is before us. It will be a busy week!

Speaking of taking in, we have taken in a new artist at The Renaissance Art Gallery. She is Laurie Shanholtzer. Laurie specializes in portraits in pastel. As a full time professional artist for over 30 years, Laurie Shanholtzer has established a sound reputation as a portrait artist and pastelist. Over this time she has literally painted hundreds of commissions. These paintings grace homes, offices and public institutions both nationally and abroad.

You can see Laurie’s work on her websites:



Ron Haeberle took in the Wednesday art classes this past week, and introduced them to watercolors. Each student got a chance to work with Ron and do a watercolor painting of water! Classes painted a wave!
