Exhibits

  1. Small Works

    January 4, 2020, 10:00 AM - 6:00 PM @ Charles Taylor Visual Arts Center - Main Gallery

    While much of the most famous works of art catch our attention due to their grandiosity, the Small Works Exhibition is here to paint a different picture – a miniature one! Artists from around the region and around the Commonwealth are invited to submit miniature and small artworks. Artworks in all media are represented, and the exhibition presents a wide range of styles, techniques, content, imagery and intent. Small two-dimensional works are required to be no larger than 80 square inches and small three dimensional works are required to be no larger than 10 inches on any side. Wonderful things do come in small packages – and they make amazing holiday gifts!
