However, artwork is useful in the Control Point on a laptop.

Would it be possible to have artwork optional on the renderer but still shown on the CP?

This depends on how the renderer is getting album art. It might be getting it from the control point or it might be reading it directly from the audio files that it streams from the server.

If the renderer is getting the artwork from the control point, there is nothing you can with MinimServer to change this.

If the renderer is reading the artwork from the streamed audio file, you can use MinimStreamer to transcode the audio file. The transcoded stream will not contain artwork.
I transcode my flacs using MinimStreamer, so from what you say it must be getting the artwork from the CP. Thanks for the information.
