PLEASE NOTE: Unfortunately artwork cannot be reserved by phone or email during the Exhibition week. Sales at the desk take priority. The show will remain online for the rest of the year, however, and you are most welcome to contact us at any time to check if a particular piece is still available for purchase from June 3rd onwards.

During the exhibition we provide demonstrations of the miniature art technique by our artists.  Cards and books are also for sale. The AGM is followed by the awards lunch for artists and friends and followed by the Private View. All work except for some portraits is for sale.  Commissions may be accepted.  Please ask at the sales desk or contact the office for details. 

We sincerely hope that you will be able to join us in 2014 for our next annual exhibition of miniature art!
