Why not join in and help to write 2D “Merry Christmas” on the walls of Gallery4allarts, on Lark Lane, decorate an indoors 3D Christmas tree sculptural installation and pack walls with your miniature artworks by creating and submitting 1-15 miniature size artworks by latest 5th December 2009.
For a better understanding and artistic performance related to this miniature exhibition Gallery4allarts is preparing for, I would like to ask those who (whether they are coming from a professional art background or not), are willing to submitting work, to read the notes and extracts mentioned below regarding the “miniature” painting and art in general and the origins of the “miniature” term itself.
“The term "miniature",
as it addresses miniature painting, is often confused with "miniaturize" and
some miniature art exhibitions do not refer to miniature as it's initial
meaning of techniques, but rather
the size of the painting (miniaturized painting). They are two very separate
descriptions. (extract from article: “Miniature
Painting - A Brief History of the Art of Miniature”, an article by: Rebecca
Exhibition will open on the 11 December 2009 and will end on the 30 January 2010.
