SMALL

June 29 - August 9, 2011

Venue
Creativity Explored

Location
San Francisco, CA

The Survivor by Rose Gordon © 2010 Creativity Explored.
Ceramic, 2” x 2”.

SMALL is an impressive group exhibition of over 100 small-scale works by more than 40 artists, and is one of the most diverse shows that Creativity Explored Gallery has ever presented. No piece is larger than seven inches square, though separately, and as a whole, the work speaks volumes. Miniature ceramics, woodblock paintings, ink drawings, watercolors and mixed-media pieces that range in style and subject matter keep each other company. It’s a veritable Noah’s Ark of an art exhibition. Distinct themes do emerge however; this show demonstrates the unique freedom that tight parameters offer an artist, enabling them to work with life’s minutia or its immensity, on one hand focusing on human gestures, the turn of a phrase, internal organs and the formal qualities of line, shape and color, and on the other hand exploring flight, geography, landscape, and architecture.

For more information, you can read the press release here.

The opening reception features live music by Diana Gameros.
