“Do you want to be part of the cultural elite, know someone who does or simply want to know the micro galleries work?
Then get the Tiny art gallery manual and you too can learn the ins and outs of owning a micro gallery. This very useful book has been made by the very talented Lisa Cole @lisa_cole_designer and the human side of Tiny cat gallery @tiny.cat.gallery and it contains
@tiny.cat.gallery the place where all the cool cats go and art is selling like catnip
@groocksgallery a very technical digital micro chip gallery within the matrix
@thedollshouseartgallery the name says it all but seeing it is so much better where else can you see a house within a house from outside
@the.open.dresser.gallery a multi storey gallery that looks almost exactly like a dresser but is so much more
@dogandbonegallery two gallerys side by side oh and did I forget to mention that they are red phone boxes
@hondartza.fraga s beyond scale can rival any large contemporary gallery complete with roof top area, wonderful cafe it is class and style condensed and is the sole reason I have good lighting
@tiffany_struwig_fine_art s lovely little dolls house that just sets the mood right whether its the fantastic works on display thats a joy to view, the ambient lighting either way its the whole package
@minigallery_dontcry a portable little gallery space that is anything but just a white cube, this gallery is definitely no square its edgey and it knows it this one doesn’t just sit in the corner it is the corner even when there isn’t one
As well as my Cardboard box with more choice than a sweet shop there’s always a way for the work to take the floor complete with real fake grass and a picture of my face what more do you want?”

This was a talk given for Bricks Bristol which became the Tiny Art Gallery Manual
“Easy to read , Great advice, perfect for art students and professionals alike.
A must read for anyone interested in social media and marketing (and how to get big things out of a tiny practice).
The book was really well laid out and easy to understand. Just the right mix of good advice and interesting anecdotes. Would recommend to anyone working with miniatures or who would like insight into how to bump up how you curate your own and others work. Not too long a read either, long enough to stimulate new ideas for someone with a professional practice and still short enough to keep an aspiring art student engaged and entertained.
Also it has great pictures! You can really get a good snapshot of each topic/gallery mentioned without drowning in text. The sheer number of galleries shown is sure to get ideas flowing if your looking for inspiration.”
