25 Days of Minis...It's more than Just an Online Art Show.

25 Days of Minis is now a part of Have Your Best Show, an online artist community focused on mastering our art businesses so we can create more, connect more, and impact more people's lives with our art.

What is 25 Days of Minis?

25 Days of Minis is an Online Art Exhibition each December 1-25, featuring mini artworks from a well curated group of professional artists.  The goal of 25 Days of Minis is to create a dynamic and fun way to shop and collect art during the holiday season.

When We Work Together, We Grow Together. 

25 Days of Minis began as a way for artists to sell smaller works during the holidays to their collectors.  By sharing the work of the other artists in the process, collectors meet new artists, and artists gain new collectors.  


The motto has always been - "When We Work Together, We Grow Together".

Let's Build Art Businesses with Purpose, Together...All Year.

Year after year, artists who participate in 25 Days of Minis share that the community and business support leading up the show helped them grow their art businesses not just during the show, but throughout the entire year. That's when we realized that it was time to reimagine how we could best help artists...not just at the holidays, but throughout the year.

Born out of the work together, grow together philosophy, the Have Your Best Show artist community is now available to any artist who wants to build their business with purpose...not just during the 25 Days of Minis...but throughout the whole year.

What is 25 Days of Minis?

The 25 Days of Minis is an online exhibition designed to give artists a place to post one mini each day in December leading up to Christmas. Each artist shares the website with their collectors, introducing them to your minis and in turn the other artists participating in the program. The collective sharing helps artists reach new collectors, and helps collectors learn about new artists. 25 Days of Minis is now a program offered through the Have Your Best Show artist community. Participation in the 25 Days of Minis will be limited to artists that are members in good standing of the Have Your Best Show online community. Join Here All accepted artists will be given access to everything they need to prepare, market and sell during the 25 Days of Minis.

How do people buy the artwork?

Each individual artist is responsible for their own sales and shipping. The 25 Days website will promote your work daily and each image will link to your point of sale page. Artists keep 100% of their sales.

How many artists are invited to participate?

Last year we had 41 artists participate. We don't know how many will be accepted this year, but we do know that our focus is on the quality of art, not quantity. The interview process will begin with the application and review of work. In some cases, we may be interviewing via video or phone for artists that haven't participated before.

What is a mini?

A mini is any artwork up to 12in x 12in not including frame. They can be any shape or size as long as they don't go above 12in on any one side.

What are the costs to participate?

The cost of the 25 Days of Minis is $250 for all artists who are accepted. Payment is due by June 30. You can choose to pay in full at that time or pay a deposit of $100 [due by June 30th] with the balance due Nov. 15th, 2020.
