Welcome to The Hilliard Society of Miniature Art

The Hilliard Society is one of the foremost 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. 

Our next Exhibition opens on Saturday June 1st at 10am - 5pm daily at the Town Hall, Wells, Somerset (closed on Sunday 2nd June). The Exhibition closes at 4pm on Saturday June 8th.
