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 24, 2016.

For $25 you can own one of these amazing works of art - mounted and ready for framing. See "How Can I Purchase a Tiny Treasue?" 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 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.  Additionally, this year there will also be a $25 award for most clever title.

 

Due to the tremendous response the last 2 years, 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. This year Tiny Treasures will be donated to the Wounded Warriors and Hope House of Baraboo.


HOW CAN I PURCHASE A TINY TREASURE?
