26th Annual Hardly Strictly Mini Benefit

November 20 - December 31, 2021

Join us for this favorite biennial holiday exhibition and sale that presents artworks by nearly 100 accomplished coastal Marin and Bay Area artists! Paintings, sculpture, photography, and more – there is something to delight everyone. Once an invitational event, now in its Hardly Strictly Mini iteration, almost all artists are selected by an equitable lottery as well as a core group selected by recent Bolinas Museum curators and staff. Participating artists have the choice to contribute either three artworks no larger in any dimension than 6 x 6 inches or one artwork no larger than 18 x 18 inches. The result is exciting, high caliber, varied, and affordable! It is an opportunity for all to give themselves or loved ones the timeless gift of art. Purchases benefit both the artists and Bolinas Museum. 

This delightful exhibition draws people from far and wide! Everyone is invited to the opening holiday party to meet the artists. Or, become a museum member at the Friend level or above and enjoy an invitation to a special preview party.  Call us or visit bolinasmuseum.org to learn about membership.
