The Clay Studio: Small Favors

The Clay Studio: Small Favors

This Deadline Expired: Monday, January 28, 2019

Small Favors engages artists’ creativity in new and exciting ways with the challenge of making pieces on a very small scale. For some artists, the work they create is similar to what they normally make, but at a reduced scale. Others use it as an opportunity to break away from what they create in their daily studio practice. The works exhibited are incredibly varied in material, form, and aesthetics.

Though small in scale the artworks created for this exhibition are huge in impact. Each work is exhibited in a 4-inch plexi wall-mounted cube. Conceived of in 2006, Small Favors grew out The Studio’s efforts to offer accessible, high-quality artworks that appeal to art enthusiasts of all ages: for seasoned collectors who are challenged for space it allows them to continue to collect work by artists they love. For young art collectors it provides a financially accessible entry point. It is our sincere hope that offering a juried exhibition of this kind brings to light new makers and broadens the audience we reach through the display of these unique works of art.

Application requirements are: personal contact information, up to 3 .jpg files (that represent no more than 3 pieces), title, medium, dimensions, price, and date. Images must be of works available for inclusion in this exhibition that measure no more than 3.75” in length, width, and height. Application Fee is $35, and helps support our programming. Selected artists will be informed by February 8th. Work is due to the gallery by February 22nd. Gallery commission is 50%. The exhibition will be from April 20 – June 9, 2019

Sandra's colorful and expressive abstract paintings and collages are about "place", and take inspiration from the landscape - While the artworks are not a representation of any specific location, they oftentimes are evocative of landscape. She invites the viewer to engage with her artworks through memory, imagination, and reverie. Working with oil paint, oil pigment sticks, watercolor and other media, her paintings and collages have been described by a curator as “visceral and expressive”.
