MENTOR, OH – One of the nation’s premier art events, showcasing original paintings and sculpture from an international array of distinguished artists, is once again taking place at Gallery One in Mentor, Ohio. Now in its 25th year, Masterworks in Miniature® will run May 10th through the 25th. The public is invited to come and be dazzled by this free event featuring one-of-a-kind original paintings and sculptures by world-renowned artists. Each exceptional work of art is no larger than 9” x 12.” Miniature art is found in prestigious collections and museums the world over. Prized by collectors for centuries, miniature art dates back to medieval times. Masterworks in Miniature® brings this celebrated art form to Mentor, Ohio, to the delight of hordes of art lovers, as well as artists, with its unique assortment of exceptional, heirloom quality art. Typical buyers are from every state and multiple countries worldwide. Gallery One president Alan Brown said, “Artists characteristically known for creating larger works of art enjoy the challenge of working small. Although miniatures are tiny in comparison to their usual formats, the artists pack incredible detail into their creations. Consequently Masterworks in Miniature® affords discriminating art lovers the opportunity to acquire one-of-a-kind pieces at prices comparable to framed reproductions. Prices for an original work of art start at $300.” The range of subject matter will be as diverse as the impressive array of artists participating in this notable invitational show. They include Robert Bateman, Paul Brunelle, June Carey, Jim Daly, Michael Deas, Michael Dumas, Edna Hibel, Robert Laessig, Dean Morrissey, Maynard Reece, Rowenna, Mort Solberg and many others. Comprised of original watercolor, oil, acrylic and mixed media works, Masterworks in Miniature® also offers original bronze, fired clay, lost wax and ceramic sculptures. Genres will include wildlife, portraits, still life, landscape, abstract, Western and fantasy by the international cast of world renowned artists. The entire exhibit will be available for viewing both at Gallery One as well as online at www.galleryone.com along with detailed information regarding each work and its artist.
