DELAWARE.- The Delaware Art Museum is now accepting entries for its 2007 miniatures exhibition, entitled Precious Spaces: Masterpieces in Miniature, which will be on view November 17, 2007 – January 13, 2008. The annual miniatures exhibition is the Museum’s signature holiday display, with a different Museum- or art-related theme each year.
This year, the theme will convey that each vignette is a diminutive masterpiece in its own right and also a showcase for the miniature artist’s interpretation of an original, full-scale work.
Each of the 10 installations will be inspired by a masterpiece of art, according to the entrant’s own definition of “masterpiece.” Entrants are encouraged, though not required, to select a work from the Museum’s own collections. Rather than exact three-dimensional reproductions, the miniatures may be interpretations of the creativity of the original.
Entrants must complete and return an Entry Form to the Delaware Art Museum no later than April 1, 2007. To avoid duplicate entries, entrants must indicate their choice of Artist and Work of Art at this time. Exhibition space is also limited. Entries will be considered in the order they are received.
Unless they submitted entries in 2006, entrants must also submit sample photographs of their previous miniature work to be reviewed by the Exhibition Committee. The Committee will contact applicants with their acceptance status no later than May 1, 2007.
Exhibits must conform to the specifications regarding size, scale, and other requirements as outlined in the exhibition’s Rules and Information.
Museum visitors will vote for the People’s Choice winners. The winning entries will be awarded ribbons for First, Second, and Third Place. This invitation is open to all interested miniature artists. -- www.delart.org
