NEW REQUIREMENTS FOR EXHIBITING MINIATURE PAINTINGS

Hangings such as a D ring or triangular ring should be fixed to the frame, top centre and must be able to fold back flat behind the frame or O ring fixed to the backing board.
These can be obtained from a good framer or Polymers Plus/Hobby Craft/Hardware store. NO screw eyes please. 
Please note: If a hanging loop is already part of the frame design e.g. brass oval frames with a hanging loop at the top of the frame, no additional D ring is required. Please contact Claire Hucker for further clarification: info@royal-miniature-society.org.uk

Meet the Artist...
Enid Clarke RMS

enid clarke

Enid Clarke RMS has been an active member of the Royal Miniature Society since 1987 and still enjoys painting miniatures at 97 years old.

Thank you!

As always, our exhibition would not be possible without a dedicated group of members who make our show possible. 

Many hours are spent organizing, selecting, hanging, photographing and packing works. If you are a member and would like to help, please contact Claire Hucker for further information.

CALL FOR ARCHIVE MATERIAL

Like many venerable art societies, the RMS was proud of its historical archives; however, during World War II their London headquarters were bombed resulting in the loss of these records.

For some years the organisation has been trying to gather together a complete run of the Society's annual exhibition catalogues but we still need the following years: 1914-1920, 1922-1924, 1927, 1940-1943, 1945, 1948 and 1950.

The Society would be delighted to hear from anybody who has copies of these missing catalogues - even photocopies would be adequate for archive purposes.

If anybody can help please contact the RMS Archivist, Anthony Lester - lesterartcritic@gmail.com
Congratulations to Elizabeth Meek MBE HPRMS who was awarded an MBE for Services to the Arts in the 2014 New Years Honours list.
