Beautiful Little Things – Gallery

beautiful little things - opening reception


ArtWorks Gallery is accepting entries for this small works show, timed to take advantage of holiday shopping! Customers will be delighted to take their ‘Beautiful Little Things’ with them directly after purchasing, instead of after the close of the show.

There is no theme directing content for this show – all styles and subjects will be accepted; the work simply needs to be no larger than 12 inches in any dimension, including frame – if framed.

The show is open to 2-D and 3-D mediums. At this time, we are unable to accept electronic media.
Works must be original. AI, reproductions/prints of originals, and kits are ineligible:

Accepted mediums include (but are not limited to): Acrylic, Airbrush, Alcohol Inks, Assemblage, Ceramic, Charcoal, Color Pencil, Collage, Digital Art, Encaustic, All Fiber Art, Graphite, Glass Art, Illustration, Jewelry, Mixed Media, Oil, Pastel, Photography (Traditional and Digital), Printmaking, Quilts, Scratchboard, Sculpture, Watercolor, wearables (ie: scarves if can be folded into a 12 inch shape), and Wood.

‘Beautiful Little Things’ will be juried by Workshop13’s Exhibition Team and affiliated artists.
