Entries for the Tiny Treasures Competition/Exhibition/Fundraiser has 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 will be exhibited on-line and at the Center for the Visual Arts in Wausau, WI August 15 through 1:00pm, September 23, 2017. For $25 you can own 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 years proceeds from the sale of Tiny Treasures will be used to to support WRAA & 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 will also be a $25 award for Best Title ($25).

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