Miniature works of art from “The Little Holiday Show”: Oils by Will Kefauver.

The Kefauver Studio & Gallery, Damariscotta, presents “The Little Holiday Show”, an art show that will run from November 11th until December 23rd. The show features new work by oil painter Will Kefauver, and the work of his guest artists, each of whom has exhibited work in the gallery during the 2016 season.

Visitors will find original artwork in a variety of mediums, note cards, and prints with low price points making them especially attractive for gift-giving. Among the work to be displayed are miniature canvases, 2” x 2”, with loops attached for hanging on holiday trees and 3” x 3” canvases displayed on small wooden easels. Although the sizes and prices of the artwork are small, their value as original art is unmistakable and makes them the most valuable of holiday gifts: original and deeply personal.

Will Kefauver says, “There’s something so special about fully conceived artwork in miniature sizes. Just little pictures at first glance, but on closer inspecation they reveal themselves to be small jewels. The added advantage? Artists love to do small pieces, so they bring out another level of creativity.”

Some of the featured guest artists include photographers Judy Bernier, Claudia Noyes Griffiths, and Ronn Orenstein; oil and acrylic painters Elaine Able, Sally Loughridge, DiTa Ondek, and Liliana Thelander; watercolorist Jan Kilburn; pastelist Jane Bowman; and sculptor Marnie Sinclair.

Kefauver also teaches beginning and intermediate painting classes in oils and acrylics for teens and adults in his studio. He points out that art lessons make an exciting gift, too. “Sometimes people are reluctant to take the risk of exploring their talent as painters,” Kefauver says. “A gift of art lessons could be just the encouragement that person needs to take a chance, to learn and discover what talents he or she has and could develop!”

Will Kefauver is an elected artist and President of the Pemaquid Group of Artists. He is a Signature Member of the National Society of Artists and the Bristol Road Galleries in Damariscotta.

A reception for “The Little Holiday Show” will be held on Saturday, November 12th, from 4:00 – 6:30 p.m. Refreshments will be served, and there is free parking. Please come and meet Will Kefauver and his guest artists.
