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. 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. 


The 2018 Exhibition is now available to view online and will continue throughout the year. You are most welcome to contact us for purchase enquiries.

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!  


June 1st - June 8th at the Town Hall, Wells, Somerset.

The 2018 Annual Exhibition is now closed, but the full show remains online throughout the year. Purchase enquiries are welcome, please get in touch to check availability. We are happy to ship worldwide.

The Hilliard Society Young People's Art Project called 'Mini Masters' will be back in 2019. Full details can be found here.
