Rehoboth Art League opens 'Spirit of the Miniatures'

October 10, 2013

The Rehoboth Art League held the opening reception for its exhibition, The Spirit of the Miniature, Oct. 4 in Henlopen Acres. Approximately 120 artists from throughout the nation submitted works for the exhibit.

Art was required to not exceed 25 square inches. This unique art form traces its roots back to the book paintings and illuminated manuscripts set in the 7th century. The work of the fine art in miniature is a particularly personal object that draws the viewer in close to see the detail of the artist’s technique.

The judge for the show was Narissa Steel, president of Miniature Painters, Sculptures and Gravers Society in Washington D.C. Shown at the opening is Steel, left, and exhibit facilitator Connie Boland.
