CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. - "They're so ... small," I said in wonder as we pulled up to the Chambersburg Council for the Arts gallery at 159 S. Main St. Through the gallery's windows, the pieces of art in the gallery's 22nd annual exhibition of miniature art caught my attention. The largest images did not exceed 4 inches by 6 inches - slightly larger than the size of a postcard. Hearing the size of these pieces is one thing, but seeing them in person in another. I found myself captivated with the small scenes they depicted.

Here are the feathery stamens of velvet-soft blossoms. Over there is the rough-cut edge of a stone step. The miniature art show at Mansion House Art Gallery in Hagerstown, featuring pieces by members of the Valley Artists Association, is chock full of super-realistic textures and tiny brushstrokes.
