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 and purchase artwork in the members gallery, peruse the full exhibition online or commission a special miniature painting or sculpture. 

For new work, please look on our Members’ Artwork page, where you can learn about the artists. Some of our members are also posting miniatures for sale. If you would like to make a purchase  please contact the Hilliard Society office. 

We appreciate your support in these difficlut times and hope to see you in 2021. In the meantime the 2019 Exhibition is also available to view online and you are very welcome to get in touch to check availability. Shipping can be arranged worldwide.
