February 12, 2009
N-289, 2008-09

Small doses of dazzling creativity are on display at the Small Works exhibition at 80 Washington Square East Galleries at New York University. For over three decades the Small Works show has provided a visual forum for both established and undiscovered artists working in small format. This juried exhibit includes artworks in every medium imaginable, and offers an opportunity to see together in one place in New York City hundreds of artworks selected from thousands of local and international entries.

The exhibition is free and open to the public. The gallery is open Tuesdays from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m.; Wednesdays and Thursdays from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.; and Fridays and Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. For more information, the public can call 212.998.5747.

This year’s Small Works was judged by Daniel Ferris of Stephen Haller Gallery in New York. The unique concept of the competition dictates that all works submitted for possible exhibition measure twelve inches or less in every dimension. Throughout the years, tens of thousands of artists contributing from Europe, Asia, Africa, Australia, and North America have challenged this size restriction with innovative and exciting creations. Although often imitated, the diversity and consistent quality of artworks exhibited in Small Works is rarely matched.
