ENTRY FEES

$25 for the first piece, $5 per each additional pieces, up to 7 pieces – Limit 7 pieces per artist.
Entry fees may be paid online through PayPal at time of registration.
All Entry fees are non-refundable.

ENTRY REQUIREMENTS

Any 2D miniature art that has not been previously shown in this gallery is acceptable.
All entries must be original work produced by the entrant.
All pieces must be marked for sale with a minimum price of $150 per piece. There will be a 35% commission per sale.
All entries will be juried with strict adherence to the international definition of miniature art.

Primarily:
1. Miniature art is fine art on a small scale with minute attention to detail which can be enlarged or withstand close inspection without revealing any faults.
2. A representational subject should be no larger than 1/6 or smaller than their actual size. Subjects too small for portrayal in 1/6 or smaller than their actual size may still meet the spirit of a miniature if the work meets the above definition of miniature art. Non-representational work such as abstracts may meet the spirit of a miniature if all other factors in the definition of a miniature are met.

SIZE REQUIREMENTS

Any 2D images must not exceed 25 square inches. The outside measurements of the frame shall not exceed 6” x 8” in perimeter, or 28” total linear measurement around the outside of the frame.

FRAMING REQUIREMENTS

All 2D entries must be framed and properly wired with D rings. On very small work a single D ring or sawtooth hanger is acceptable.
