Celebrating Artist Clarita Ricketts

Contributed by Don Collins

The Miniature Painters, Sculptors, and Gravers Society of Washington, DC, is celebrating its 84th Annual Exhibition of Fine Art in Miniature at the historic Strathmore Mansion in Bethesda.  This year 292 artists are participating in this juried exhibit.  Among them is Clarita Ricketts, one of Collington’s resident artists, who has been a member of the Society for the past eight years.

To further celebrate this event, the Interiors Group is honoring Clarita with her own one-woman show here at Collington. 53 of her original works are featured, many framed by the Collington frame shop!

For the first time, Clarita will offer some of her originals for purchase.  Please walk down the auditorium hallway and enjoy this unique and beautiful exhibit.  And be sure to bring a magnifier or reading glasses!
