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 Pyle Center in Madison, WI from August 10 until September 26, 2015.

Tiny Treasures will go on sale on-line at the end of July.  For $25 you can own one of these amazing works of art - mounted and ready for framing. Tiny Treasures can also be purchased at the Pyle Center on September 25 from 6:00 to 9:00 pm and on September 26, from 9:00 am to 1:00 pm.

 

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 exhibit each September. 

 

15 Tiny Treasures are chosen to be part of WRAA’s Timely Treasures Pocket Calendar.  1st ($100), 2nd ($75) and 3rd ($50) Place winners are printed on the outside cover of the calendar.  Each of the other 12 represents one of the months of the year.

 

Due to the tremendous response in 2014, we are again offering an option for unsold Tiny Treasures.  If your Tiny Treasure isn't sold, you can pick it up, have it mailed back to you or donate it to a non-profit.  Last year over 120 Tiny Treasures were donated to the Women's Shelter in Wausau.  This year they will be donated to the Middleton Public Library, Wounded Warriors and Hope House of Baraboo.
