To read a review of the exhibition:





Amateras Annual Mini Paper Art Exhibition 2014

Art Alley Gallery, 51a William Gladstone, 1000, Sofia, Bulgaria


Works are shown by 64 artists from 22 countries.

The main aim of the exhibition is to create a tradition in the presentation of contemporary 2D and 3D small-size paper art, created by artists from all over the world without restrictions of techniques, styles or kind of paper. The purpose of the exhibition is to stimulate the development of creativity and innovations, to exceed the ordinary imagination of using paper and to promote the exchange of ideas and sharing of original experiments.

The exhibition is part of Sofia Paper Art Fest 2014.


30th April - 30th May 2014

In a Jiffy

Meffan Museum and Art Gallery, 20 West High Street, Forfar. DD8 1BB

Tel: 01307 464123


'A relationship between distance and time.'


Jiffy: time taken for light to travel; a unit of time; time taken to travel a specific distance.


Professional and Honorary Members of the Society of Scottish Artists have been invited to create works on or of paper that specifically respond to the given theme embedded in the title 'In a Jiffy.' 

Works explore notions of time, distance, travel, perception and process as well as the practical considerations of transportation and delivery. Artists were also asked to consider the journey that their work would make to reach its destination and asked to send their work directly to the gallery in a 'jiffy' bag or any other postal envelope or packaging.


Saturday 18th January - Saturday 15th February 2014

Tuesday - Saturday 10am-5pm (closed Monday)

Admission free
