Deck the Walls: Holiday Miniature Show
Featured in Western Art Collector
December 2014


Holiday MiniatureTrailside Galleries is bringing the works of more than two dozen artists together for its annual Deck the Walls - Holiday Miniature Show, the highlight of which is a fixed-price sale by drawing held December 4th at the gallery’s Scottsdale, Arizona, location.


The exhibition begins December 1 and runs through Decem ber 28. Among the artists participating are Cyrus Afsary, Jeremy Browne, Shawn Cameron, Bruce Cheever, John DeMott, Patricia Dobson, Robert Duncan, Z.S. Liang, Dan and Danny McCaw, Michael Godfrey, Joann Peralta, Tim Solliday, Ian  amsay, Cynthia Rigden, Sueellen Ross, Tim Solliday, Mian Situ, Matt Smith, Dustin Van Wechel, Curt Walters, Morgan Weistling, William Whitaker, and Jie Wei Zhou.


Situ’s work in the exhibition is a mother and daughter piece titled Pretty in Pink. “The mother and child in the painting are Wa people from Yunnan Province in southwest China,” Situ says of the piece. “Mothers always carry their children either when they are doing their routine chores or going to the market.” Godfrey’s piece is a floral image—like Situ’s, it also features pink—titled A Gift from April. “Springtime in Maryland is highlighted by cherry blossom trees. I have observed their beauty for years but it wasn’t until two years ago that I considered them as subject matter for my paintings,” Godfrey says. “I have done a series of up close vignettes as I am drawn to the abstractions that are created by the blossoms.”

The show will also include landscapes, cowboy images, still lifes, portraits, marine and seascapes, and a number of figurative pieces.
