[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.

Deadline: 4 Jan 2020
Works must be on a 4×5” surface. Pieces that do not measure 4×5” will not be considered. Do not use the thin canvas or masonite boards. They are not easily wall mountable for the buyer and tend not to sell as well as other surfaces in the show. If you are sculpting the base of your sculpture must be 4×5”, but there is no height limit. Artists may submit a maximum of 5 pieces.
Do not attach hanging devices. The gallery will take care of this for continuity. If you are working on paper, it must be archival and mounted on a sturdy 4×5” surface that can be hung on the wall. Works done with materials such as charcoal and pastels must be fixed to protect the work. Submissions must be new and not previously shown.
If the jury selects your work, then you will be notified by phone or email the following week. You will then be required to bring the work in person or by mail. You will be responsible to ship your work.
Pieces that are selected for this year’s exhibition will be priced at $175 each, with standard 50% commission. Keep this price in mind when creating your pieces.
Show opens to the public on Friday, January 24th from 7-9 PM.
Pre-Shrunk Art Show Artist Benefits
Chosen artists will benefit in having their art seen and purchased/collected by our large customer base in person as well as online. Argyle will promote each artist’s work throughout the duration of the show on their blog and social media sites. The show will encourage artists to work small. Argyle encourages artists to connect with the others that will be selected for the show. This exhibit has a sense of community. It fosters new relationships with artists and the gallery. In fact, the gallery has continued to work with many of the artists discovered from this exhibit after the show has ended.
