SAN DIEGO— Exclusive Collections Galleries (EC Galleries) proudly presents its Fifth Annual “Miniature Painting Show” on November 4-6 at its Fashion Valley gallery (6-9pm on Friday and Saturday, 12-5pm on Sunday). This annual, one-of-a-kind art show features an amazing exhibit of rare miniature paintings created by 12 internationally-acclaimed artists.

EC Galleries’ Annual Miniature Show asks each participating artist to create 8 original paintings that are no larger than 8 inches by 10 inches. This year’s event will feature more than 100 miniature paintings on display for visitors to view and purchase (paintings start at $400) and the opportunity to meet the artists who painted them. EC’s 5th Annual Miniature Show will feature paintings from the following artists: Michael Flohr, Henry Asencio, Christopher M., Gloria Lee, Walfrido Garcia, Steve Barton, Steven Quartly, Michael Summers, Daniel Ryan, Justin Houlihan, and Richard Johnson.

“Miniature painting has been a highly coveted practice throughout history, and what makes it so unique is the fact that painting in such a small format is really a challenge for most artists,” said Ruth Ann Thorn, EC Galleries Owner. “Everyone loves this event – not only does it give collectors the ability to see first-hand what their favorite artists are capable of doing, but it also offers everyone the rare opportunity to see something unexpected from some of today’s top talent.”
