Miniatures are the original portable art. While any work at 1/6th scale is technically a miniature, The Renaissance Art Gallery show, like most miniature shows does place size restrictions on entered work. This is the challenge. But it is also the tradition. While royalty and great nobles could commission huge paintings, real people created work in scale with their lives.
The Renaissance Art Gallery’s Annual Miniature exhibition is a nationally recognized art show. This is why we strictly enforce the size requirements. It is also why photography and other mechanically reduced formats are not acceptable in this show. Our show draws the best from across our nation, and for many of us this is the only opportunity we will have of entering a national art competition. And it is fun.
There is still time
Now is the time to create wonderful small works of perfection and time to enter the 11th Annual National Miniature Exhibition. If you have never tried to work in miniature, now is the time!
