Proper Small Exhibition of Itsy-Bitsy Idol Portraits!

The Doll’s House Art Gallery and Proper Sound shop and cafe/bar on Chestergate in Macclesfield bring you the Proper Small exhibition of portrait art - we created the opportunity to make a portrait in any medium for an Open Call to exhibit in our 1:12 scale Gallery on Park Lane.

The 74 submissions are a wonderful mix of depictions of artists, musicians, celebrities and family members (including pets), framed in 50x35mm keyrings. The submitting artists - who live mostly in Macclesfield, Stockport and Manchester but also as far away as Canada and Texas - have created portraits of people they admire, strong or talented or just think are brilliant! They range from embroidery, crochet, wire drawing and collage to drawings, paintings and digital art.

Find out more about the artists here!

If you'd like to try portrait art yourself, check out our Pinterest board for ideas & inspo! You can also try Arc in Stockport’s free resources here.
