Heart & Hand: Minature Painting with Debbie Thompson Wilson

Joseph Schneider Haus Folk Artist-in-Residence 2012, Debbie Thompson Wilson demonstrates miniature painting and tells us a little about the history of limners and miniature portraits. Before photography, facetime and Skype miniature portraits were the next best thing to being with your loved one.
Visit the Joseph Schneider Haus galleries to view Debbie's tiny works of art. The Medieval World Illuminated, opening Sept. 15, will highlight the labours of the months in medieval times, feature a modern replica of a Book of Hours and include illuminations of popular medieval saints and aspects of medieval life over the course of the seasons.
In the lower gallery The Illustrated Alphabet: Everyman’s ABC takes an intimate look at the alphabet from A to Z through illuminated letters, printed ABCs and other early educational aids.
Visit Debbie at the Heart & Hand Festival, Sept. 22, where she will be demonstrating calligraphy, get your name written in fancy fraktur!
