Just in time for Christmas and holiday shopping, this show provides a unique opportunity to purchase original art at very modest prices. Most artwork is priced between $20 and $80. No work is priced over $300. Artwork is sold off the wall in a “pay and walk away” style. As such, the show changes a little each week with new art pieces being added almost daily to take place of works that were sold.
Artist participation in the annual small works continues to grow each year from 68 artists in 2008 to over 115 artists in 2011. There are hundreds of pieces of art from which to choose.
Artists hail from Buncombe, Graham, Haywood, Jackson, Swain, Transylvania, and many other counties that comprise the Blue Ridge National Heritage Area, the 25 westernmost counties in North Carolina. The show challenges artists to create works smaller than 12 inches in every dimension, including base, matting, and frame, etc. Participating artists include aspiring artists, hobbyists, emerging artists, mid-career artists, and established artists who have been producing work for a number of years. It’s a Small, Small Work 2011 features a variety of mediums including: painting, printmaking, drawing, ceramics, mixed media, collage, fiber, sculpture, gouache, woodworking, metal, jewelry, photography, and more.
