Artists League of the Sandhills in Aberdeen, NC, Features Small Works

The Artists League of the Sandhills in Aberdeen, NC, will present Small Gems of Art, an exhibition of small works and fine art miniatures, on view from Aug. 4 - 28, 2013. A reception will be held on Aug. 4, from noon-2pm.

The exhibit will showcase the exquisite small and miniature works of art from Full Members. These two-dimensional works of art, done in oil, acrylic, watercolor, ink and other media, measure 8 x 10 inches or less.

This genre of visual art has been around since the 1300’s and began with illustrated manuscript painting of the monks. Its zenith of popularity occurred in the 17th century, and the appeal of these small paintings waned after the introduction of photography and the changing tastes of the art world. In the mid 20th century, the interest in producing small works enjoyed a resurgence.

The Artists League of the Sandhills is a not-for-profit organization founded in 1994 to promote interest in the visual arts by providing art education and a friendly environment in which to work, exhibit and sell members’ artworks. It is located in historic downtown Aberdeen in the old Aberdeen Rockfish Railroad storage terminal.
