Association of Miniature Artists

At least one of our FAACE (Fine Arts and Crafts Entrepreneurs) members paints miniatures. Traveling around the web looking for good art shows this popped up:

It's by the Association of Miniature Artists! Hope it's something of interest to some of you.

Tips for entering Juried Art Shows

Came across this on and thought some of you might be interested in reading the tips. Here's the link to get to the full list: Just posting the first two below so you'll get an idea of what you'll find when you click the link. It's a full page of tips.

  • Is the event local, regional, national, or international? The larger the pool of artists, the harder it will be to get accepted into the show, but the prizes are generally higher.
  • Does your work meet the guidelines for theme, medium, size, weight, and presentation requirements?

    Reminder - Pick up art from Farrago tomorrow & FAACE meeting

    Hope to have a good group at the meeting tomorrow (Tuesday) night to hear Ed & Patsy Gullett speak on a variety of subjects. They know all about getting into shows across the country, selling art, living as an "art couple", running shows and more. Should be interesting and educational.


    Pick up art from Farrago Gallery

    Tomorrow is the final day of our Farrago Gallery show. Everyone who participated needs to pick up the art that didn't sell between the hours of 10 a.m. and  1 p.m.
