The 83rd Exhibition of
Fine Art in Miniature
The Miniature Painters, Sculptors & Gravers Society
of Washington, DC
Sat, Nov 19, 2016–Sat, Dec 31, 2017
It’s the little things! More than 600 tiny treasures in stone, oil, pastel, and print travel to the Mansion from around the world for this ever-popular juried exhibition. From the size of a postcard down to a postage stamp, petite portraiture, still life, sculpture, and collage capture the world in miniature. And these mini marvels aren’t just about making small art—they are about the ability of the miniaturist to captivate and enchant the viewer with a refined object that doesn’t disappoint when you move in for a closer look.
Active for 83 years now, The Miniature Painter, Sculptor & Gravers Society of Washington, DC, was sponsored by the renowned miniaturist Alyn Williams. He first established the Royal Miniature Society in England in 1895 and came to Washington to teach in the Corcoran School of Art.
