Town hall Wells Somerset
Once again, the Hilliard Society held its Annual Miniature Painting Exhibition in the Town Hall in the ancient cathedral City of Wells, Somerset. About 300 exhibits were admired by visitors from all over the country. The 2017 exhibition closed on 10th June, but can be seen online from http://www.hilliardsociety.
Purchases can be packed and shipped worldwide.
Miniature painter Jenny Brooks, HS, RMS started a new project called 'Mini Masters' to encourage young people to take up miniature painting and a selection of the young artists' work was showcased alongside the main exhibition for the first time this year. If you have or know children who might be interested in learning about this ancient skill, enquiries can be made through the Hilliard Society website. There are two sections 7 - 11 years and 12 - 16 years.
