87th Annual International Exhibition of Fine Art in Miniature
November 22, 2020 - January 9, 2021
Prospectus for the 2020 Exhibit

Exhibit Update 7/14/20

We are happy to inform you that as of this date, we are still planning to hold our annual exhibit! Our lovely venue, Strathmore Mansion in Rockville, Maryland, is planning to be open. In collaboration with Strathmore Mansion, the exhibit will be set up in compliance with State and county requirements in place at that time, which may include social distancing, face mask mandates, etc.

We are excited that this year all artwork that is juried into the show will be professionally photographed and viewable on our web site. Sales will be handled by Strathmore. We generally hold our exhibit in the upstairs gallery of the Mansion. However, this year the exhibit will be hung throughout the Mansion.

Please note an important change to the prospectus regarding receivers. If your last name begins with “B”, your works should be sent to Bob Duggan (see link above to revised prospectus; sculptures still go to the receiver noted in the prospectus). We will not be holding an artists’ tea or awards ceremony. Our judge will select awards and the certificates will be mailed. Award winners will be acknowledged on the website.

Works are still due 9/5. It is critical that we have all works in hand by 9/5, and entry forms are received by Treasurer Tom Penn by 9/5. If our physical show must be cancelled during the coming months due to mandates required by State and county officials, we will still have our exhibit on-line. There would be no entry fee refunds.

We are SO excited to hold our exhibit in these uncertain times in a safe manner, and are counting on all artists to help us promote the exhibit! Feel free to forward this email to other artists who might enjoy participating. We look forward to seeing your wonderful works. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us. Thank you!

Kind regards and stay well,
