The Miniature Painters, Sculptors &
ravers Society of Washington, D.C. (MPSGS)

Annual Exhibition

Every fall, we hold an International Exhibition of Fine Art in Miniature.  Our prospectus is available on-line (usually by the end of June). When printing this on-line version, you may need to amend your printer properties to "scale to paper size." You can also request a mailed copy by contacting Nancy Still,, 301-977-2190.  You do not need to be a Society member to enter our exhibition.  Several activities are held in conjunction with the exhibit, including the following:

Collectors Opening:  We hold a private, invitation only Collectors Opening, generally the Saturday before the show opens.

Public Opening:  The opening is attended by many local artists, and often artists from other countries attend as well.  The public is encouraged to come, meet the artists, and purchase the beautiful art works.

Artist Luncheon/Awards Ceremony:  We host an Artist Luncheon followed by an Awards Ceremony.

Catalog:  An exhibition catalog is produced which lists the title, medium, and price of each art work, and the artist's name and address.  The catalog includes photographs of the award winning works in each category, and is distributed free to every participating artist and collector.  It is available to the public at the exhibit.

Demonstrations:  MPSGS members present demonstrations of miniature art techniques periodically during the course of the exhibition.
