Local Artists Challenged to Think Small

The Mispillion Art League (MAL) held their 3rd Annual 6” x 6” Silent Auction Fundraiser from June 13 to June 24 as MAL members and local artists were asked to create art on a small canvas. This year, 116 mini-masterpieces painted by over 60 area artists were displayed and sold.

Event organizer Pearl Burbage says the small canvass, just 6 inches squared, allows artists a unique opportunity to do something a little different. “It is amazing what artists can do with six inches by six inches, how meticulous and how they can create an entire scene and mood,” she said. “The size allows them to stretch their imaginations and their creativity.”

On Saturday, June 24 MAL hosted the public as all proceeds went to support the many special programs offered by Mispillion Art League. “Many of the people who attended were impressed by the variety of artwork and visually how they looked together.” said Burbage. “The canvasses are beautiful by themselves and even more as a collection.”

The mission of MAL is “to bring a quality visual arts program to the Greater Milford area,” and they do just that. There is something for everyone, and all talents and skill levels are welcome. Patrons might see an experienced painter trying her hand at an aqueous media class, or a photographer studying hand-building with clay. The League holds classes for children and adults in drawing, watercolor, oils, print making and jewelry with plans to expand workshops into other genres of the visual arts. There are open studio sessions as well as monthly figure drawing workshops for members. The MAL has also sponsored events such as bus trips to area art museums.
