The public is welcome to this two-day event which starts on Thursday, December 16 with a preview of the art from 11 AM to 4 PM. The silent auction will start on Friday night at 5 PM and end at 7 PM. The Awards Presentation will be at 7:30 PM. Refreshments will be provided.

Proceeds from the 2021 Year’s Magnificent Miniature Masterpieces event will again go towards scholarship funds to local students at IRSC and art supplies for local St. Lucie County Schools.

Last year we had two goals for the fundraiser and we achieved both. The first was to provide a gift-wrapped Magnificent Miniature Masterpiece to every resident in a local assisted living facility along with artistic hand-decorated mugs to the facilities’ staff. The second goal was a Magnificent Miniature Masterpiece show and auction at Cool Beans Brew. The 2020 show awarded prizes to both professional artists and students. The auction raised money that fully funded the club’s three art scholarships to students attending Indian River State College which will again be the goal of this year’s auction.

The miniatures with easels are available from Rodger Stone on the porch on Mondays from 10 to Noon at Cool Beans Brew, 1115 Avenue A, Fort Pierce, FL and at Wallflower Custom Framing located at 806 South 6th Street, Fort Pierce, FL. Individuals may also contact Rodger Stone (518) 378-6546) Kristen Schirard (772-201-2745) directly.
