Pick-up time!

Time to pick up the fine miniatures you bought at the Renaissance Art Gallery's 14th Annual National Miniature Exhibition!

Sad to say the miniature show is over. Patrons can now pick up the works they purchased, and artist can retrieve their works this weekend.

Its sad to see it come down, but now you can bring your artwork home and hang it on your own walls!

Patrons who purchased artwork and participating artist can now retrieve artwork.

Thanks to all the artists and visitors, this was again a very successful show!

The Members Selection of local work was a watercolor by Brenda Beatty of St Albans, WV. This piece, titled "Minnie Bowers", is a portrait which is a well done watercolor for such a small format. The use of complementary colors is easy on the eyes, but it is the quirky composition that separates this work from more conventional pieces and demands our attention. And, though we don't know Minnie Bowers we can infer a lot from the sparkle in her eyes.

Director’s choice Award



"It seems flowers have become somewhat trite as subject matter, but I know this wonderful subject matter. These small offerings have life and are so well done, maybe not like a photo, thank you Diane, I love them!"
