Vail’s Cogswell Gallery hosts a miniature painting and sculpture show

As the saying goes, “the best things in life come in small packages.” That is the inspiration for Cogswell Gallery newest exhibit, a miniature painting and sculpture show beginning that’s on display now through Jan. 31.

More than a dozen artists are participating in the exhibition at Cogswell Gallery, a miniature show of art work that becomes a viable solution for holiday shoppers looking for a special gift that creates artistic resonance and a legacy to be shared with family and friends.

Landscape painter Darcie Peet, impressionist landscape painter Allen Lund and palette knife artist Jeff DesAutels responded enthusiastically to the miniature challenge, as did Paul Kethley and Rick Young.

Joining some of Cogswell Gallery’s long represented artists is a group of newer artists now in residence, like Eric Jacobsen, Dan Deuter, Renee Buller, Mitch Baird, Lorenz Chavez and Corrina Johnson. Complimenting the painters are several bronze sculptors including Sherry Sanders and Jim Moore.

In times when the large walls have already been taken care of, how do we revamp a neglected corner, mezzanine or guest bathroom that has the potential to become a focal point? A miniature painting or sculpture could be the answer.

Call 970-476-1769, visit or stop by Cogswell Gallery, located at 223 Gore Creek Drive in Vail Village, to learn more.
