(NORTH BETHESDA, MD)—Saturday, November 19, 2022, through January 7, 2023, Strathmore hosts three art exhibitions. “Perspective” features work by two, accomplished Washington DC area artists, Jack Boul and Jean Hiron; “89th Annual Exhibition of Fine Art in Miniature” is a juried exhibition that celebrates the rich tradition of miniature art; and Ralston Cyrus continues his thought-provoking perspective in “A Decisive War”—an intimate reflection about internal conflict through portraiture.
“It’s always an honor to present artists who challenge our senses and encourage us to think critically about our world.” said Lesley Morris, director of Mansion and Galleries at Strathmore. “It’s also the time of year that many of us celebrate storied traditions, and we look forward to welcoming our neighbors to one of our most favorite, long-standing exhibitions—Fine Art in Miniature.”
