Miniature exhibition up and running

The exhibition of miniatures is hung, opened and in full swing. The opening on Thursday night went well, a buzzy crowd of people filled the room to capacity, the speeches went well and four works were sold. The feedback I received was overwhelmingly positive, so now I can breathe a sigh of relief and sit back for a little while. On Friday afternoon I was  interviewed on local radio about the exhibition, along with Di, my vice president, and enjoyed the experience! I found it’s surprisingly easy to talk about something that you are very familiar with. The interview went for about 40 minutes, so I hope it will generate more visitors for the exhibition.

A couple of photos below of a few of the works before the visitors arrived, a shot of the outside of the Mint, with people gathering on the balcony outside the room and one of me thanking Suzanne Bravery who opened the show. Suzanne is the daughter of the founder of the society and spent many years working  for the Historic Houses Trust, quite a few in the actual room where the exhibition is held – pure coincidence, which made Suzanne a perfect opener.

  1. I really like the way the works are presented; beautifully framed and hung to their advantage. Each picture looks like it has plenty of room to breathe, even amongst its friends.


    1. Thanks Julie – we brought in the uniform framing a couple of years ago, and it was a bit controversial, a lot of the artists liked having their own choice of frame, but I think everyone now realises how it unifies the exhibition and the works can each speak for themselves. And it makes it much easier to hang!


        1. I can’t post other artists work without their permission Richard, but I could email you a couple of photos which might show some of the works in more detail. I will contact you via FB. The pieces I put in were the apricots and the pile of linen which I posted recently.


  2. So glad the opening went well Anna ! It looks a splendid arrangement .
    I spy a couple of my favourites of yours there 😉
