You’ll encounter the extraordinary when you go to a miniature art show.

From a very small art studio inside a shadow box. To a masterpiece painting of Lake Superior’s vast shoreline on a 3-inch by 5-inch canvas.

Miniature art is a fascinating art genre. It’s expressed in about every art form…from paintings to etchings to sculptures. The visual expression of fine detail and excellence are brilliant.
