Urban Miniatures is PaxtonGlew’s curatorial debut, pulling together 40 artists from the Urban and contemporary art scene. The show will include an immersive model village diorama, which juxtaposes the nostalgia of model trains with Urban Art and Graffiti. The show is set to be a Winter exhibition highlight for both contemporary art collectors and miniature fans. Household names in the street, graffiti and contemporary art scene have transformed a Hornby train set; from a church, high rise buildings to a Tesco, with running trains, within a never seen before miniature diorama scene.
PaxtonGlew aim to curate immersive exhibitions by emerging and established artists, bringing art to new audiences and celebrating the breadth and diversity in new contemporary art.
