Opening: Friday 16th August 2013 at 6:30 pm. Exhibition continues until Saturday, 31st August 2013
This annual and important exhibition which is open to members and non-members, showcases a unique collection of exquisite art works diverse in style and technique and will include paintings, drawings, mixed media, print making, handmade books and sculpture. The works have a perimeter of no more than 40cm. The exhibition will include approaches both traditional and modern conforming to the spirit of miniaturisation.
The art of the miniature has been practiced for many hundreds of years and in many cultures across the world. It is an art where the viewer is drawn to observe closely the object and the rich and detailed world meticulously depicted.
For this event prizes are awarded for the different categories and entries this year will be judged by the highly acclaimed and multi-awarded artist Del Kathryn Barton, winner of the 2013 Archibald Prize.
