Hello again! It's been awhile so I have some catching up to do. The Spanish Moss Miniature Art Show was a success! We had 78 pieces of art, a majority from expert miniature artists from all over the United States, and some very beautiful and amazing artwork. There was a wonderful article in the arts section of the Mobile Press newspaper, as well. I learned that I am definitely not a miniature artist - true miniature art is intricately detailed and minute, smooth surface, etc. But I may be inspired to one day become a miniature artist after seeing some of the beautiful work in this show!
Here are some photos taken during the judging and during the reception, which was held on February 5th. The show will hang until Feb 28th, so there is still time to check it out!
Here is Ben Shamback of Univ of South Alabama judging the artwork.
