88th Annual Exhibition of
Fine Art in Miniature
November 20, 2021–January 8, 2022
Active for over 87 years, The Miniature Painters, Sculptors, and Gravers Society (MPSGS) of Washington, DC was created by renowned miniaturist Alyn Williams. He first established the Royal Miniature Society in England in 1895 and came to Washington to teach at the Corcoran School of Art.
Today more than 700 mini masterpieces in stone, oil, pastel, and print come from countries around the world for MPSGS’ prodigious juried exhibition. From the size of a postcard down to a postage stamp, portraits, still lifes, sculptures, and collages capture the world in miniature. These tiny marvels aren’t just about making small art. They are about the ability of the miniaturist to create art that captivates, enchants, and invites you to move in for the closest possible look.
