any questions concerning her miniature artwork to attendees.

FIRST PLACE FOR ACRYLICS - OCTOBER 2013

"I recently received a phone call from The Art Gallery of
Fells Point to inform me that I had won First Place in
Acrylics for
"Sun Dance" at the annual North American
Miniature Show in Baltimore, MD. Of course I was excited
to learn this, but the icing on the cake was hearing that it
immediately sold at the opening reception."

HONORABLE MENTION AWARD - OCTOBER 2013
Chambersburg Council for the Arts, Chambersburg, PA
 

Not every show supports awards, but those that do
keep artists on their toes when it comes to what
an artist may choose to submit. At this years
Council for the Arts 29th Annual Miniature Art
Exhibition there were 317 submissions, and from
these only 200 were selected for display. Just eight
received awards and Linda's Joy Ride happened to
be one of them! As with any competition, it's
rewarding to be recognized for a job well done.

The show will run from November 1, 2013 through
January 3, 2014. Please refer to Linda's schedule
page for more information, especially if you live in
or around Chambersburg, Pennsylvania.

THE SNOW GOOSE GALLERY - MAY 2013
Bethlehem, PA


Artists L to R: Judy Lalingo; Carol Andre; Linda Rossin; Nancy Shelly; Mary Serfass; Richard William Haynes;
and Patricia McCandless.

The opening reception of The ART of the MINIATURE XXI at The Snow Goose Gallery was a smashing success.
Collectors and participating artists alike traveled from near and far to attend. Linda enjoyed the afternoon meeting
new and previous collectors to discuss her latest works, or just caught up on what's new. The artwork was breath
taking, the music very entertaining, wine flowed freely, and the hor d'oeuvres, well let's just say they were so delicious
there was barely a crumb left after it was all over. Without a doubt, a great time was had by all!

GOLDEN PAINT SPONSOR AWARD - APRIL 2013
Parklane Gallery, Kirkland, WA
 

Having white-watered the Snake River
in the US northwest many years ago,
Linda continues to cling to her memories
of breath taking scenery and sensuous color.
Each year she provides Parklane Gallery of
Washington state with a miniature of "Snake
River Country" for their annual miniature
fine art show. And each year different judges
have presented these pieces with independent
awards. Canyon Country III received the
Golden Paint Sponsor Award for 2013.

ONE, TWO, THREE AWARDS - ONE SHOW
MINIATURES IN MARIPOSA - MARCH 2013
Elizabeth Specht Memorial Miniature Art Show at the Sierra Artists Gallery, Mariposa, CA


Hero Worship

1st, Animals
 


Joy Ride
BEST OF SHOW
 


Evening Dunes
1st, Seascapes

Linda had to do a triple take when she learned she had not only won BEST OF SHOW, at the Sierra
Artists Gallery miniature art show, but that she had also received FIRST PLACE FOR ANIMALS and
FIRST PLACE FOR SEASCAPES! Some shows only allow one award per artist, but others believe in
giving awards to the most deserving artwork. Minis in Mariposa happens to be one of them, and
needless to say, Linda is absolutely ecstatic!

AMAS AWARD - MARCH 2013
Alabama Miniature Art Society, Spanish Moss Miniature Art Show, Mobile, AL
 

The 5th Annual Spanish Moss Miniature Art Show may be
over, but the experience of winning the AMAS Award for
Romancing the Reef remains new for Linda. This colorful
ribbon will be added to her accumulation of awards for her
never tiring efforts to create nothing less than the best.

ART DONATION - FEBRUARY 2013
Carolina Tiger Rescue, Pittsboro, NC
 

Linda has donated an original painting to Carolina Tiger Rescue
for their Black Ties & Tails Ball auction, an annual gala to benefit
Carolina Tiger Rescue. CTR is a nonprofit organization that provides
a lifelong sanctuary to wildcats rescued from the pet trade or other
abhorrent conditions, whose mission is to save and protect wild cats in
captivity and in the wild.

 

The exotic evening shimmers with fine food and drink, lighthearted
games, silent and live auctions, entertainment and dancing. The
highlight of each Black Tie & Tails Ball is the superb auction
packages. Examples of previous donated items included: a weeks
vacation on Hatteras Island, NC; Moonlight and Wine with the Tigers,
a twilight tour during the cats' most active hours, followed by wine
and cheese while listening to the night sounds of CTR.


"This year I'm honored to gift an original painting of one of CTR's ocelots, who I'm sure his adoptive parents will recognize! Having visited Carolina Tiger Rescue many times, I am constantly impressed by the dedicated staff and individual attention each animal receives. This 55 acre compound is filled with beautiful healthy tigers, leopards, lions, ocelots, and caracals, to name just a few, who are very fortunate to now be a part of CTR. Each enclosure provides ample space for these wild animals to romp, or just snooze in or on their private houses. It has been my privilege to personally met these handsome creatures along with the committed people who care for them." LR

Black Ties & Tails Ball will take place on Saturday, February 23, 2013 at Washington Duke Inn, Duke Campus, Durham, NC. Limited tickets still available. To learn more visit: http://www.CarolinaTigerRescue.org
