[Side Arts Certified Sponsored Listing] Bristol Art Museum announces a national call for artists for a juried exhibit featuring miniature art, Miniature Monumental.
For centuries, miniature artworks have been created around the world and across cultures dating back to prehistory. These little treasures take many forms, tend to be easily transported, and have been created from many materials. Miniatures can be mementoes of loved ones, illuminated manuscripts, paintings, drawings, original prints, etchings, stamps, sculptures, engraved gems, and even carved beads.
Unique and distinct among all other arts, the one common rule of thumb for miniature artworks is they can be held in the palm of the hand or measure less than 25 square inches in size. The artists’ style when creating miniatures can range from conventional to cutting-edge, limited only by the artist’s creativity.
