For the second year in a row, SMAL artists are invited to sell original “miniature paintings” at the Christmas in St. Michaels (CISM) Marketplace, Friday, Saturday and Sunday December 13-15th. The Marketplace is held in Grange hall where CISM tickets are sold and there is a lot of traffic.

Last year over 60 of these little gems sold.  Shoppers loved them!  And why not – an original piece of art for under $100.  Typically, items sold for $30-$60.  The top sellers were local scenes, still life’s, botanicals, florals, Christmas i.e., the usual. Sales will be split 50-50 between the artist and CISM.
