Opening May 9 and running to June 29, 2013:
Small Things Considered ~ 21st SMALL WORKS INVITATIONAL
This season's edition of the popular group show of small works features over 80 artists including Davis Dominguez Gallery regulars, prominent artists borrowed from Tucson's outstanding contemporary galleries and a large contingent of up-and-coming talent.
The concept of Small Works Invitational is to challenge artists to make a complete artistic statement within limited space – 12"x12" for painters and other 2-D artists and 18" maximum height for sculptors.
Unlike asking an artist to make art of a specific subject or theme, the small works criteria is a means of harnessing each artist's own expression and creating a substantive group exhibition on a big/small scale.
Small Works Invitational is definitely not an exercise in miniatures, although there are usually a few examples each year. The great majority of works are fully realized, serious compositions that don't rely on the small scale for curiosity's sake. From the collector's perspective, it allows one to acquire an original work at a modest cost compared to the big works the artists normally create.
All contemporary styles and trends are represented in the exhibit and every medium is used. We break the gallery rule of showing just paintings, drawings and sculpture and welcome photography, fine craft and any unique object d'art.
Come see the show when you're in the neighborhood – we promise you won't be disappointed and you may be surprised (we always are). And don't forget the big reception on June 1, the SUMMER ART CRUISE, a big yearly event sponsored by the Central Tucson Gallery Association. Go to www.ctgatucson.org
