This event has ended.

Ranging from Arthur Dove, a member of Alfred Stieglitz’s stable, to the self-taught phenomenon, James Castle, to the master of the funny bone, Edward Koren; these artists prove that ‘small’ is a big idea.

Malcolm Mobutu Smith’s sculpture investigates racial anxiety in the age of Obama; while Gelsy Verna’s complex, collaged portraits address the same tensions from an earlier time.

John Himmelfarb’s faraway places with strange sounding views are inventive and personal; TL Solien deftly uses collage to reference his
personal history. Peter Schulte’s drawings, in looking backwards, show a forward thinking elegance.

A mastery of watercolor provides us with a sense of place in Mary Anderson Pickard’s Mississippi Gulf Coast; in Gladys Nilsson’s watercolors, we aren’t quite sure where we are, but the bright colors and whimsical figures indicate that it is a fun place to be.

Mess and madness abound in works by Amer Kobaslija, Woohyun Shim, and Thomas Burleson, while an eerie calm permeates Marzie Nejad’s empty room and Gudrun Kristjandottir’s melting Icelandic snow.

SMALL illustrates a breadth of ideas, mediums and technique that come together in a surprising harmony to show the viewer that good things come in small packages.
