2017 - 8th Annual Tiny Treasures
Exhibit - Competition - Fundraiser
WHAT IS A TINY TREASURE?
Tiny Treasures are 2 1/2” x 3 1/2” pieces of original art (entirely new each year) made by artists throughout the state of Wisconsin and beyond. They are floated inside a mat that is cut larger than the artwork. They will be exhibited on-line and at the Center for the Visual Arts in Wausau, WI August 18 through September 23, 2017. For $25 you can own one of these amazing works of art - mounted and ready for framing. See "How Can I Purchase a Tiny Treasure?" for all the details!
Proceeds from the sale of Tiny Treasures benefit the Lindroth Publication Fund which helps support the cost of WRAA’s annual color catalog for the Wisconsin Regional Art Program’s art exhibition each September.
Sixteen Tiny Treasures are chosen to be part of WRAA’s Timely Treasures Pocket Calendar. 1st ($100), 2nd ($75), 3rd ($50) and Best Title ($25.) Place winners are printed on the outside cover of the calendar. Each of the others represents one of the months of the year. Again this year there will also be a $25 award for most clever title.
Due to the tremendous response in the past two years, if your Tiny Treasure isn’t sold, in addition to the options of picking it up or having it mailed back to you, you also have the option of donating it to Wounded Warriors.
