Miniatures XIX

Exhibitions of miniature artworks by Upper Hunter artists have been a regular feature on the Arts Centre exhibition program for over two decades. The guidelines given to the artists for the exhibition are based on the Australian Society of Miniature Art rules, which state the actual artwork should not measure more than 40cm in perimeter and the subject should be miniaturised. Artists are given free reign regarding subject matter, choice of medium, technique and style.

As such Miniatures sees a diversity of works in mediums that includes amongst others photography, silverpoint, embroidery, sculpture, ceramics,watercolour, oil, charcoal and pencil.

The tradition of miniature painting stretches back hundreds of years and across many cultures. The universal appeal for miniature painting continues to this day, with a network of artists, galleries and societies all over the world devoted to this art form.

Delight in the miniature artworks of among our finest Upper Hunter artists!
