The Miniaturists at The Scottish Gallery is an intriguing collection of beautifully made artworks on a small scale. The exhibition is named after a fictional novel centred around a 17th century doll’s house made famous by the Dutch woman Petronella Oortman (1656-1716), whose elaborate creation is in the permanent collection of the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam. Showing that there is something inherently covetable about small, beautifully made, transportable objects that can be treasured forever, The Miniaturists features two dozen international artists whose materials include glass, silversmithing and ceramics.
Exhibiting artist include: Vicki Ambery-Smith, Malcolm Appleby, Claus Bjerring, Ane Christensen, John Creed, Jack Cunningham, Patrick Davison, Jennifer Hickey, Kathryn Hinton, Adrian Hope, Kyosun Jung, Choi Keeryong, William Lee, Grant McCaig, Angus McFadyen, Cara Murphy, Anthony Scala, Yuta Segawa, Graham Stewart, Hiroshi Suzuki, Adi Toch, Andrea Walsh, Yusuke Yamamoto.
