Haywood County Arts Council in Waynesville, NC, Offers Exhibit of Small Works
The Haywood County Arts Council in Waynesville,
NC, is presenting the exhibit, It's a Small, Small Work 2010,
its 3rd annual small works show, on view in Gallery 86 through
Dec. 31, 2010.
Just in time for holiday shopping, the 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.
Artist participation in the annual small works
continues to grow each year from 68 participating artists in 2008,
96 artists in 2009 to over 100 artists in 2010 with over 500 pieces
of art from which to choose.
Artists were sought from the Blue Ridge National
Heritage Area which encompasses 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 emerging artists, mid-career
artists, and established artists who have been producing work
for a number of years. It's a Small, Small Work 2010 features
a variety of mediums including: painting, printmaking, drawing,
ceramics, mixed media, collage, fiber, sculpture, gouache, woodworking,
metal, jewelry, photography, and more.
The small works show is a win-win situation for customers, artists, and the Arts Council. The customer purchases small pieces of original art for a smaller price, artists receive a better than average commission on the sale and the Arts Council retains a small commission to help support the organization and its programs and events.
This project received support from the North
Carolina Arts Council, an agency of the Department of Cultural
Resources, and the National Endowment for the Arts, which believes
that a great nation deserves great art.
