May 2008
A Shore Welcome receives "Second Place" at Seaside Art Gallery's
Annual Miniature Art Show

Judges comment: With its near-flawless evocation of weathered wood and metal offset by a brilliant burst of flowers, A Shore Welcome is a miniaturist marvel of textural and chromatic finesse, a contemporary still-life that is a genuine technical tour-de-force. It is also tightly conceived and thematically witty: a seemingly ho-hum stretch of everyday front-door décor that, as the artist shows us, demands and rewards a closer look. For only then do you see the tiny green lizard sunning itself on the propeller!

Silhouettes Along the Shore
Art and the Animal

Linda is a signature member of the Society of Animal Artists and Miniature Artists of America, and has had several miniatures selected for exhibition in both OVAL's Kentucky National Wildlife Exhibit (August - November, 2006) and SAA's Art and the Animal Annual Members Exhibition (September - November, 2006).

What makes this notable is that most of the paintings selected for inclusion in these fine art events were mid-sized to very large works. Linda's miniatures are a reminder to all that paintings "in the little" are equally as meaningful as their larger counterparts!

The Trials and Joys of Working Small
InformArt, Spring 2005

InformArt Magazine published a delightful editorial about painting miniatures. It’s about what motivates artists Linda Rossin, Melaine Fain and Wes and Rachelle Seigrist to create these Tiny Treasures, the challenges they face and the rewards they reap from the "wow factor".

March 2005

Linda has been elected as a Signature Member into The Miniature Artists of America
The First Organization to Honor Nationally Outstanding Professionals in American Miniaturism

MAA, Miniature Artists of America, the first national society to honor outstanding practitioners of American miniature art, was founded in Clearwater, Florida, in 1985. In addition to recognizing leading contemporary miniaturists, its purpose is to broaden public understanding and appreciation of this ancient art form.

An invitational organization, MAA accepts no more than ten artists each year into its ranks as Signature Members. The Jury of Admission selects candidates from artists who have been admitted to at least ten competitive shows staged by major nonprofit miniature societies in the United States within the previous five years and who have received awards from these shows. The Jury may also invite other outstanding professionals who work "in little" but who may not be associated with a miniature society. However, they must be nominated by three Signature Members and submit at least five works for review by the Jury.

MAA Mission
* Honoring top professionals in American Miniature Art.
* Encouraging a national awareness and understanding of fine
miniature art among artists, collectors, exhibitors and the general public.
* Promoting scholarship and study in the field of miniature art.
* Maintaining a collection of contemporary American miniature art.
