2008 — Shiloh: The Mourning Star Collection
June 23 – August 22
The Association of Miniature Artists traces the heritage of miniature art back to the illustrated manuscripts of scribes in the Far East and Europe prior to the 15th century. The resurgence in popularity in miniature art started in 1896 in England and has currently expanded worldwide.
The Association continues to describe contemporary miniature painting as using highly skilled and painstaking techniques in which the artwork should hold up well under magnification. It should draw the viewer’s eye deeper and deeper into itself with amazement at the gemlike details of the tiny treasure.
