These seven, amazing artists were invited by Shrode Art Center Director to be part of the first miniature exhibit to be showcased at the Regenhardt Gallery.  They represent a variety of media including, ceramics, metal-smiting, watercolor, jewelry and mixed media. The only stipulation was that their works must be able to be held in the palm of their hand. Some have created individual works; some have created a collection of miniatures that will be showcased in larger groupings. The diversity of subject matter and exquisite craftsmanship will leave visitors in awe of the tiny artistic wonders.
