Each year the ACTME club members create a themed exhibition for the public to view. This year our feature display will be 'A Creative Feast for the Eyes'. Projects bringing together the artistic and creative talents of our members. We don't want to give too much away right now. I'm excited, I have a feeling this will be the best display ever!
Previous themes have included - 2014 the theme was "Round About" - we had to create something round, in any scale. 2016 the theme was "Unfinished Business" - we all have miniature scenes, room boxes, etc that we have started but not yet had time to finish, so we decided to take care of our unfinished projects. 2017 was all things French. 2018 was a streetscape theme - walking down the avenue.
The "Make and Take" table will return for children who wanted to learn a miniature skill - it was such a HUGE success and lots of fun. Again, there will be a minimal fee from $1 to $2 (depending on the complexity). All the children and adults that participated had an absolute hoot of a time. We will also have a dollhouse play area for the children, they had so much fun playing last year.
Our show is a fantastic way of meeting our super talented club members. If you are creative and love miniatures as much as we do, consider becoming a club member. The show also offers items for sale from a selection of local and interstate artisans and traders.
2020 marks the beginning of a new journey, we are donating ACTME Show profits to MULCH Marymead's Urban Land Community Harvest..
[MULCH is a horticultural social enterprise supporting adults with disabilities to engage in a productive urban farm. Operating since 2013, and now based at Stirling, this award winning enterprise promotes skills development and community connection].
We look forward to seeing you at our annual ACT Miniature Enthusiasts Miniature Fair and Dollhouse Show. Come and say hello, you won’t be disappointed.
If you are a trader and/or artisan and would like to participate in our show, please send us an email and we will forward you the information to you.
