Preview and Sale September 15
Show and Sale September 16 & 17
National Museum of Toys and Miniatures
Kansas City, MO
This one time only, special event juried show will be held inside the beautiful National Museum of Toys and Miniatures, which has one of the best collections of fine scale miniatures anywhere. Participating artists will be giving talks about their works on display in the museum on Saturday and Sunday.
Over 60 artists from around the world will be participating, including some who have never done a show before, some who seldom or never do shows, and some who are coming out of retirement just for this show. See the list of artists.
A highlight of the show will be The Barbara Marshall Award for Artistic Achievement, sponsored by the National Museum of Toys and Miniatures. It will honor miniatures artists whose work exceeds the current standards of fine-scale miniature making. All artists participating in Miniature Masterworks may enter one piece. Prizes will be awarded for first place ($15,000), second place ($10,000) and third place ($5,000). All pieces entered must be for sale, and all will be on display at the show all weekend.
This is the first time awards of this kind have been offered at a miniatures show in the United States. Don’t miss this chance to see some truly incredible works of miniature art!
A wide variety of wonderful miniatures, in every price range, will be available for sale all weekend.
Following the show on Sunday, September 17, there will be an open house from 6-10 PM at the home and studio of Bill Robertson, which is near the museum. All are welcome. Bill’s shop is just as amazing as his work! Details and a map will be available at the show.
