Welcome to The Hilliard Society of Miniature Art

​​The Hilliard Society is one of the foremost miniature art societies in the UK, bringing together miniature art collectors and artists from around the world, and dedicated to encouraging greater appreciation of this specialised art form.

On our website miniature artists can find information on
materials, suppliers, exhibitions, books and how to join the Society. Collectors can view artwork in the members gallery, peruse the full exhibition online or commission a special miniature painting or sculpture. 

​​Every summer we hold one of the largest International Exhibitions of Miniature Art in the UK in Wells, the smallest city in England. The 2016 Exhibition is available to view online and you are welcome to contact us for purchase enquiries throughout the year.

​​The most frequent comment from first time viewers of the miniature masterpieces is:​

​ Amazing, unbelievable detail, beautiful work! Never knew that such marvellous paintings existed! ​​ 


The Annual International Exhibition of Miniature Art closes on Sunday July 3rd, but remains online for the rest of the year. Over 350 Miniature paintings and sculptures are included and purchase enquiries are welcome from July 5th onwards. 
Held during the Annual Exhibition, this is a rare opportunity to receive tuition from  experienced Miniature artists. Places are limited and booking essential - we look forward to seeing you in 2017!

The Society is delighted to announce the election of  new President Joyce Rowsell BA RMS MAA HSF MASF MPSGS CPA NMMAS.
