OPEN CALL

The FiKVA Foundation and WG Gallery are excited to announce an Open Call for artists to submit their miniature artworks in any medium (except for digital work) for a unique and captivating exhibition.
MiniARTures is a global competition, providing a platform for artists to demonstrate their skills in capturing the essence of realism within the confines of a miniature format (40x40 cm or 15,7 inches). This competition aims to encourage and support artists financially and provide them with an opportunity to exhibit their best works at WG Gallery for an extended period of time (11th May - 25 august 2024, Dordrecht, The Netherlands).

Enter your best miniature 2D work and you could win a group exhibition, a gallery representation, and up to €2000 in cash and other prizes!     

MiniARTures is open to all artists age 18 or older, worldwide.
We welcome entries in various genres: modern, classical and imaginative realism, hyper-, photo- and surrealism – as long as the artwork reads as representational and not stylized or abstract.
Digital work will not be considered for this call.

Accepted mediums: paintings (oils & water-based oils, acrylic paints, watercolors, inks…), drawings (charcoal & pencils, dry and wet mediums…), press prints (etches, linocuts, lithographic prints …), mixed-media, airbrush, and collage on any support - canvas, board, paper, wood, panel, aluminum etc. Works must be handmade; no digital works will be considered.
