Miniaturing is practiced by artists of all ages and skills who express their experiences, memories and dreams on a three dimensional canvas. N.A.M.E. is a gallery for these miniaturists, and for the enjoyment of everyone who shares in their celebration of life.

Region N-2 is comprised of miniature enthusiasts from Northern California, Northern Nevada, and Hawaii. We create, collect, and enjoy miniatures; items which are small, scale reproductions of real life objects.

Our group is part of the National Association of Miniature Enthusiasts (N.A.M.E.); an educational, non-profit organization that is dedicated to the miniature collector and builder through sharing ideas and experiences among its members. Our goal is to link people of like minds in order to share our love of the hobby that captivates us.

The effort of many hands, minds and talents is the embodiment of NAME’s motto: “Only through sharing can we really enjoy our treasures!”

It is the mission of the National Association of Miniature Enthusiasts to promote miniatures through education, collecting, and building friendships and skills through the sharing of experience and ideas.

Membership is open to everyone. To find out how to become a member, please visit the association’s membership page.
