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.
There will also be custom-made frames available for a donation at Evening with the Arts and on State Day, September 27, 2014, in Wausau, WI. The frames are made especially for the Tiny Treasures and come complete with glass and hanging hardware.
They will be exhibited on-line and also will be on exhibit from August 6 until 1 on September 26, 2014 at the Marathon County Public Library in Wausau.
These wonderfully clever and beautiful works of art will be for sale on-line during "Buy-It-Now" from midnight July 27 thru September 15. Tiny Treasures can also be purchased at the Evening with the Arts reception at the Center for Visual Arts in Wausau on September 26 from 6 to 9 p.m. and on State Day, September 27, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Jefferson Inn. This year artists of unsold Tiny Treasures will have the option of donating their work to the Women's Community Shelter of Wausau.
Proceeds from their sale benefit the Lindroth Publication Fund which helps support the cost of WRAA’s annual color catalog for the Wisconsin Regional Art Program’s (WRAP) Art Exhibit each September.
