The Rickie Report initially sent out a Call to Artists for the “Mini Show” and heard from Gallery owner, Marilee Lee, that many of you responded! We hope you will stop by and see how a small piece of art can make a big impression! The Artist Framing Gallery in Jensen Beach has matted and framed each entry, making them unique and well-valued. Details about the reception and show are in this article.
9th Annual Magnificent Mini Show!
Show date: November 1st – 30th
Reception: Saturday, November 9th 1-4 pm
What is a “mini”?
- A Mini is a piece of art created in any medium on paper, canvas etc.
- It is small enough to fit in a 4 x 9 envelope
- Measure the Height and width- add the 2 numbers- it should add up to 8 inches or less.
- SMALLER IS BETTER can be as small as 1 x 1
The 9th annual Magnificent Mini Show will run from November 4th – 30th. A public reception will beheld on on Saturday Nov 9th from 1 – 4pm. This year there are a record 55 artists participating and 150 tiny masterpieces all framed up ready to show!
Artists from all over have brought in or sent in the mail their unframed art to the Artist FRAMING Gallery, where each piece has been framed using double or triple mats, notched corners, raised mat, spliced mat, museum glass, or what ever it takes, without regard to cost.
Marilee tells us, “In some cases the finished art is priced less than what the framing would have normally cost. We have artist from all levels of learning represented— artists who have never been in a show before and high-end, well-known artists who have shown in Museum shows and Galleries. The Artist FRAMING Gallery has a chance to show off creative framing styles and the Art lovers get an adorable art piece at a very good price! If the art is not sold, the Artist gets to take home their framed work.”
Marilee is excited to share, “This year we will be giving out ribbons. The Jensen Beach Art League will be judging the art. The JBAL is a group of artist that show and sell thier work the 3rd Sunday every month Nov-April at the Indian River Park in Jensen Beach. This is going to be the best ever Mini Show of all!”
