Tiny Treasures Exhibit - Competition - Fundraiser

Entries for the Tiny Treasures Competition/Exhibition/Fundraiser have closed.

Tiny Treasures are 2 1/2” x 3 1/2” pieces of original art, entirely new each year. They are exactly 2 ½ x 3 ½” with a depth of no more than 1”. They are free-floated in the mat so you DON’T want to leave a border – go all the way to the edge. If they’re larger, you run the risk of them not fitting in the mat. Send them unmatted and unframed. They are exhibited on-line and were exhibited at the Center for the Visual Arts in Wausau, WI from August 15 through September 23, 2017. For $25 you could have owned one of these amazing works of art - mounted and ready for framing. See "How Can I Purchase a Tiny Treasure?" for all the details!

This year's proceeds from the sale of Tiny Treasures will be used to to support WRAP.

Sixteen Tiny Treasures are chosen to be part of WRAA’s Timely Treasures Pocket Calendar. 1st ($100), 2nd ($75), 3rd ($50) Place winners are showcased on the outside cover of the calendar. Each of the others represents a month of the year. Again this year there was also a $25 award for Best Title ($25).

Due to the tremendous response in the past two years, if your Tiny Treasure didn't sell, in addition to the options of picking it up or having it mailed back to you, you also had the option of donating it to a non-profit. This year's gifted Tiny Treasures benefited The Neighbors' Place of Wausau.

Tiny Treasures must be of original concept and design. Please read the following article by Jean Lang, "Original or Copy."


Friday night before the annual WRAP State Day, September 23, WRAA hosted a gala reception. Attendees enjoyed the art of WRAP’s statewide exhibition, STAMP’s teen artwork, the Tiny Treasures exhibition and hors-d’oeuvres while listening to lovely music and talking with artists. This year’s Evening With the Arts was Friday, September 22, at the Center for the Visual Arts (CVA) 427 N. 4th St., Wausau, WI. For more information please click Evening With the Arts in the ACTIVITIES tab above.

There were also custom-made frames for sale at Evening with the Arts and on State Day. The frames were made especially for the Tiny Treasures and came complete with glass and hanging hardware.
