Quackers Win Honorable Mention

quackers_melinda_fabian_paperI was honored to receive Honorable Mention in the Sculpture category for my 3-D paper sculpture titled Quackers at the 2016 Miniature Painters, Sculptors & Gravers Society of Washington, D.C.’s 83rd Annual International Exhibition of Fine Art in Miniature.

The miniature art show will be on display through Dec. 31, 2016 at the Mansion at Strathmore, 10701 Rockville Pike, North Bethesda, MD 20852. If you are in the area, I hope you will stop in to see the miniature art show.

 

 

 

 

Support Your Local Artists

melinda_fabianharford_artists_galleryLooking for that perfect gift? Your local art gallery may be just the place to find it! Many galleries are often filled with art made by artists in your very own town. You can find beautiful works of ar, including watercolors, pastels, oils paintings, sculptures – in many different styles, from realistic to abstract– in a wide price range to fit into different budgets.

Many artists will also print their art work on note cards or sell prints of their work. Not looking for a painting to hang on the wall this season? That’s OK, your local gallery probably has a jewelry artist, ceramic artist, woodworker, and perhaps a fabric designer specializing in creating beautiful women’s scarves. You never know what kind of treasures you will find until you stop in!

melinda_fabian_havre_de_grace_holiday_galleryVisiting your local gallery is also a nice way to learn more about your favorite artist. Many times, the artists also work at the galleries, so you can meet them in person. It is a nice way to learn the artist’s story – why they are interested in creating that type of art work, how they got their start and what process they go through to create their art work.

There’ still plenty of time to visit your local art gallery to find that perfect handmade gift made by one of the artists in your community. Happy Shopping!
