Maker Talk: Miniature Paintings with Nancy Van Meter (Online)

Tuesday, July 20, 2021, 5 p.m.

The art of creating miniatures--sculptures or paintings that pack all the detail of a traditionally-sized work into something just a few inches across--dates back to the 19th century. Artist Nancy Van Meter, a member of the Miniature Painters, Sculptors, and Gravers Society, will demonstrate some of the specific tools and techniques needed to paint in such a small scale. She'll also display some extraordinary finished miniatures to reveal how today’s artists are reviving the art and technique of miniature painting.
