CALL FOR ENTRIES: Rive Gauche Art Galleries, 6x6" Miniatures

Rive Gauche Art Galleries, in Scottsdale, Arizona, in association with American Art Collector Magazine and Southwest Art Magazine, will be hosting a Miniature Art Competition and Show this coming March. Works will be limited to a 6”x6” format (image size), and artists can enter up to 3 paintings. The format limitation should make a very interesting display, and attract all sorts of collectors.

We are opening the show to all artists, in all media, and the show will take place during the height of the Scottsdale’s high season, when a maximum of collectors are in town. The jury will award a certain number of prizes, including several cash prizes (first prize is $5,000). We are also hoping to get much coverage from some of our sponsor magazines.

Attached is a prospectus for your review. I would be grateful if you could forward it to all the artists you know, and spread the word. I am hoping that the event will be wildly successful, and that it will give artists much exposure. Please note that we have extended the deadline to February 20th, 2011.

Kindest regards,

Frederic de Claremont, Ph.D.

Meeting Photo Recap: Miniature Requirements Presentation by Lin McCay

This past Saturday we had a great meeting over at the Bear Canoyon Senior Center. Lin McCay joined us to give an excellent and informative presentation about requirements for miniatures in preparation for the upcoming Masterworks show. Her presentation included a LOT of information about framing for miniatures and how miniatures are scored before the judges even see the submitted works.

Here are some of the supplies Lin brought as examples of various approaches to framing and supplies.

What an awesome turnout!
