Parklane Gallery is accepting entries for their Annual Winter Show of Small Works and Miniatures, which runs from November 9 – December 31, 2022. Timed to take advantage of holiday shopping, customers will be delighted to take treasures home with them after purchase, instead of after the show closes. In previous years, nearly all of the pieces accepted as Second Showing were displayed during the show.
