Miniature Art is a group exhibition featuring sculptures and paintings created on a mind-bendingly small scale.
Join our preview list for early access to the online catalogue.
Art in miniature is inherently impressive by virtue of the precision and patience demanded by its very creation, but that is not where its magic lies. The magic is in the invitation extended to the viewer to reimagine the world on an entirely different scale, one in which even Thumbelina might be considered a giant. Miniature art delights the eye and teases the brain with possibility.
Opening Reception: Saturday, March 7, from 6pm – 9pm. Free entry.
This exhibition runs from March 8 to March 29, concurrently with James Bonnici's solo show, Obstruct.
This group show is co-curated by master miniaturist Joshua Smith, whose scratch built sculptures of urban decay, made principally of cardboard, fibre and paint, have been shown in Europe, the United States, Hong Kong and, of course, Australia. His replicas of bits of neighbourhood and buildings are not just demonstrations of considerable skill: for him, they are a way to tell a story, to share a history.
Beinart Gallery is thrilled that Smith has helped bring this collection of artists and their visions and stories in miniature to share with you.
