16th Annual Miniature Show
February 6, 2020
An event every day that begins at 12:00 am, repeating until February 20, 2020
Now in its sixteenth year, American Folk Art will present its Annual Miniature Show next month featuring 12 of the gallery’s artists. With winter’s chill taking hold during February, The Miniature Show, timed to align with Valentine’s Day, is a much anticipated and heart-warming event. To be included, the artworks must be smaller than 9 x 7 inches. The challenge for the artists is to create a whole emotional world within that size limit. Over the years, this show has helped to develop new ways of thinking about what is possible for several of the gallery’s ‘larger format’ artists. The smaller size concentrates the mind, and in a world with so much stimulation, peacefully concentrating on a small format lets the world fall away, and the image emerge. Often these small works, created during the lengthening evenings of winter, evoke an intimacy that summers’ energy cannot compare with. The show runs Feb 6-20 with an opening reception Feb. 7 from 5-7pm.
