This winter, stop by Camp Verde's local art gallery and pick up a mini masterpiece or two.

White Hills Gallery, located on Main Street, is excited to announce their newest exhibit, "The Mini Show." An exhibit that includes over 200 mini works of art, all ten inches and under.  "The Mini Show" will be on display through Friday, Jan. 4, 2013, with an opening reception on Friday, Nov. 16, 5-8 p.m.

Some artists work big, but every artist starts small.

This exhibit shows the extent to what small works of art can truly become. With examples of watercolor, mixed media, ceramic, sculpture and the few paintings on alternative surfaces, each mini work of art pushes the boundaries and redefines the size limit a masterpiece can be.

Although White Hills Gallery primarily displays contemporary styled work, this exhibit showcases the various approaches to art, including abstract, landscape, traditional, still life, folksy and multimedia, to include a mini masterpiece for all.

Local Sedona artist, Rose Moon, spent a good part of last spring painting a small painting a day. This challenge helped push her artistically to focus on creating unique compositions out of ordinary objects. As she progressed, traditional still life compositions of household objects began to create personalities of their own. Most of these small paintings are a part of "The mini Show."

Another local artist, from Camp Verde, Pat Sharp, creates mini landscapes of Sedona red rocks out of watercolor and ink outlines. These landscape scenes are a merge between reality and fiction by using both abstract and traditional styles in one 5x7" watercolor painting. A collection of twenty or so mini landscapes by Pat Sharp will be on display in "The mini Show." 

Clarkdale artist Elizabeth Gerstner's assortment of mini goddesses, over 25 ceramic torsos glazed in bold colors, will be a part of "The mini show" too.

Along with Moon, Sharp and Gerstner, over thirty local and regional artists were selected, including Deborah Gallagher, Vada Lovato, Holly Stedman, Idell LeGendre, Barbara Ragalyi, Stephanie Peters, and more.

Every work on display in "The mini Show" is 10 inches or smaller, with most under $70.

White Hills Gallery invites everyone to attend the opening reception on Friday, Nov. 16, from 5 to 8 p.m. to meet and greet with the artists. There will be wine and hors d'oeuvres provided by The Horn Saloon.  

White Hills Gallery is located at 348 S. Main St. in downtown Camp Verde, next to The Horn Saloon, and is open Sunday through Thursday 11 a.m.-5 p.m., and Friday and Saturday 11 a.m.-8 p.m. For more information visit the website, or call the gallery at (928) 274-7903.
