“Small Works/BIG Ideas/ Thinking Inside the Box” will open at the Melrose Bay Art Gallery on Sunday, November 8, 2009 with a reception from 1-5 PM. This show features over 100 original works of art in a variety of media by 52 recognized as well as emerging local artists.
Artist participation was by invitation only and the requirements were simple: each artist was given an overall allotment of 432sq inches, all work had to be original, framed if appropriate, with outside measurements not exceeding a total of 144 square inches per piece. In addition each artist was assigned specific size dimensions for hanging space, so “thinking inside the box” was necessary.
Why small works? Because art created on a small scale is both intimate and indescribably powerful. This particular format also has the potential for making the work of a favorite artist more economically accessible and art patrons will have a wonderful opportunity to acquire art for collecting or for giving.
The Melrose Bay Art Gallery is open every weekend from 10 AM to 6 PM on Saturday and from 1-5 PM on Sunday. “Small Works/BIG Ideas/ Thinking Inside the Box” will be up from Saturday, November 7 through Sunday, December 20.
