Welcome to The Hilliard Society of Miniature Art

The Hilliard Society is one of the foremost contemporary Miniature Art societies in the UK, bringing together collectors and artists from around the world, and dedicated to encouraging greater appreciation of this specialised art form. Every summer we hold one of the largest International Exhibitions of Miniature Art in the UK in Wells, the smallest city in England. 

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.
