I love small works. Whenever I visit museums, galleries, and friend’s homes I’m drawn to the small framed image. Most times it’s a gem, a little jewel hanging off to the side, dwarfed by larger, louder framed images in the room, sometimes on the same wall. But, upon closer inspection, I find they’re usually only diminutive in size. Like looking through a keyhole, I’m often amazed at the sheer amount of beauty and objects held in such a small space. Or, I”m mesmerized by the simplicity of just one object perfectly framed; small, but secure enough in itself to hold the room.

So, I’m always thrilled to announce a call for entry for Small Works. And, this year we’re making it a Big Show. I’ll choose 50 images, none larger than a framed 5″ x 8″ to show on the walls of the gallery, and in the online gallery. And, I’m upping the number of images to 5 per $30 fee.

I want to see a range of work – still lifes, portraits, animals, landscapes, urban and street, architecture, abstract, you name it – open up your archives and show me the best small works you have!
