Mini Art For Big Impact

Do you dismiss the idea of buying original because you assume you cannot “afford” original art? Today, art can be found for everyone and I assure you there is affordable art for you, if you take time to look. 

We also suggest you consider Miniatures. For collectors, small-scale can be so charming and easy to fit into almost any size home, apartment or studio. Miniatures also give you the opportunity to be creative by deciding how you will arrange on a wall or on a tabletop or both.  As you add to  your miniature collection, you can easily rearrange without dragging out the ladder.  Miniatures are easily found in the $100 range and can go up from there.

The White House and Smithsonian both have impressive collections. Why not you? Hunter-Wolff Gallery features miniatures and small-scale art by award-winning artists, some who specialize in miniatures following all the criteria necessary for juried shows and competitions. One can always find room for a 4×4 Patrice Walker painting, a textured clay design on slate by Vicki Grant, a small bronze sculpture like  Fred Lunger’s bunnies, or small fused glass painting by Gary Vigen. These award-winning artists are some of many who offer art-lovers with a small budget and limited space options to collect prized art.

Miniature painting involves tedious and delicate brushwork that captivates under close scrutiny.  A visit to Hunter-Wolff Gallery might surprise visitors the number of options, sizes and mediums for which small-scale art can be found.  Consider miniatures for your tabletop or display shelves.  They are also affordable and easier to rearrange as new artwork comes into your home and your collection continues to grow.

Remember this tip too, most collectors follow two rules:  (1) Buy the best with what you can afford; (2) Take advantage of Lay Away Plans when offered. If you collect miniatures, we’d like to know how you got started and how you display your collection.
