Little Treasures - TIA's Small Format Exhibitions

Since 2008, Trevisan International Art has presented its unique "Little Treasures", an exhibition in small format, at the Galleria De Marchi in Bologna, in close partnership. These exhibitions promote international artists from Europe and around the word, and provide a valuable opportunity for artistic, cultural and human exchange. "Little Treasures", in its 12 editions has proven to be one of our most successful TIA events. These exhibitions of art jewels have always proven extremely popular and have for years attracted many fine creators and art connoisseurs. Each exhibition has counted artists from no less than 40 countries.



Upcoming: The Illusion of Reality

30 November - 12 December 2019, Bologna, Italy


This new exhibition is a special edition, with the aim to celebrate the achievement of the over ten years of history of the mini format exhibitions and the great network these events have created during the years. Thanks to all artists who have participated during all these years, some of you are by now good friends and companions in many of my art adventures. I feel very grateful.

In choosing the theme for "The Illusion of Reality", I drew on my belief that artists, powerfully interacting with the proposed subject, will respond letting flow their intimate imaginary into artworks where reality and illusion, visible and invisible, will originate strong vibrations in a significant and sustained dialogue. 

I hope this theme will be both a challenge and inspiration to artists.
