Mini Art Show
The Mini Art Works...With a Twist closes Feb. 20. More than 80 artists contributed work the the annual fundraiser

There has been such an upwelling of collective and creative energy for the Mini Art Works project this year and we are so delighted with how this phenomenal community arts event has lifted our spirits. With the current circumstances surrounding public gatherings, we continue to adapt as creative people do. 

While COVID-19 precautions won’t allow for the outdoor music and visiting we’d hoped for, pick-up day is going ahead and will take place during regular gallery hours Saturday, Feb. 20. 

More than 80 amazing artworks were submitted and they await the opportunity for up-bidding until the final pick-up day, this Saturday. 

The Hearth Gallery remains open for viewing the artworks during regular business hours until Saturday. 

Priority bidding takes place between 1 p.m. and 2:30 p.m. that day. Bidding is open to everyone from 2:30 p.m. to 4 p.m. when you can check your final bids and pick up your winning piece(s). 

COVID-19 safety procedures will be followed with picking up purchased art. Nine patrons may be in the gallery and masks are required. There will be a designated warming area for those waiting to enter and those completing their purchases of the artworks. Volunteers will be there to help.

Details on the process are on our website. 

The Gallery is open five days a week (Thursday to Monday) to view and bid on the artworks on exhibit. There is also the option to bid by email. View the online gallery at and email with your choice of art piece.
