American Art in Miniature Exhibit Returns to Gilcrease Museum
The 2007 American Art in Miniature exhibit will be held at Gilcrease Museum Oct. 20 through Nov. 4.
The invitational exhibit features works by 223 regional and nationally renowned American artists, an increase of approximately 15 percent since the 2006 exhibit. Work includes original paintings and sculptures in a wide range of subject matter and media. There are figurative works, landscapes, still-life and others. All artwork will be on sale through Nov. 1 with proceeds benefiting Gilcrease Museum’s education and public programs.
