Preview of our exhibition at Studio Altenburg, Braidwood. Open from Friday 11 March 10am.
Our annual exhibition for 2021 took place at The Link, Strathnairn, in north Canberra from 7July to 15 August. It turned out to be a window in the middle of the Covid pandemic and we were able to stay open for all but two days at the end of the exhibition. It was a bright moment for all the artists involved and for the visitors who responded so warmly to the exhibition. The exhibition had members of our group at the exhibition each day, talking to the visitors and sometimes creating miniatures – the joys of working tiny made this possible.
The talented AIM hanging/installation team created a stunning display on the first wall as visitors entered the gallery. Each work appearing on our invitation was hung together. It drew so much attention. The gallery walls were then filled with over 100 miniatures from our 20 members, revealing a very wide range of mediums and subject matter. Watercolour, oil, acrylic, gouache, embroidery, graphite, ink and coloured pencil all hung like jewels.
The exhibition was opened by Gallery of Small Things, director Anne Masters, who gave a fabulous opening speech for us all. The opening was very well attended, and it felt almost surreal to be enjoying ourselves so much after lockdowns and restrictions. Food and wine flowed, and the atmosphere was wonderful.
Please enjoy some photos from this wonderful show.
The Art in Miniature group’s annual exhibition is now open at at Raglan Gallery, 9-11 Lambie Street, Cooma, NSW until 27 September. 95 miniature art works from the artists are hanging in the Tiller Gallery within the complex. A variety of mediums and delightful subjects are being exhibited.

Hanging a show of miniature art is a job of fine precision. The team curated and hung the exhibition beautifully. Here are some behind the scenes of installation day.
