Tiny Art Exhibit showcases the world of miniature art

by Collette Hayes

The Tiny Art Exhibit, sponsored and organized by the Holladay Arts Council, ran from Feb. 5-10. The show featured the artwork of 146 artists of all ages and 402 pieces of art in all medium creation techniques, including watercolor, acrylic, oil, textile and sculpture. The art show guidelines required all pieces to be under 9 inches in length and width. 

Amateur and professional artists throughout the Salt Lake Valley were represented in the nonjuried exhibit, with selected art pieces ranging in price from $10 to $700 for collector pieces created by renowned artists. 

“What I most enjoy about this art show is seeing a professional artist's work, an artist who has been studying and selling art for years, such as well-known professional artist Erin Barrett, shown right next to a beginning artist like 6-year-old artist Deanna Griffiths,” Holladay Arts and Culture Manager Megan Attermann said. “This is what community arts is all about.”

Former Holladay Arts Council member Beckie Rock managed the show this year and exhibited several pieces of her miniature art. She studied illustration and web design at Salt Lake Community College and continues to volunteer time as the webmaster for the Arts Council website.
