We are a community rich with talented artists, and it is our extreme honor to bring you this show each year.

The last exhibit of each year is our Think Small show.  It's our chance to offer small artwork for sale and consideration for your purchase for gift giving or collecting.  It's also our chance to say THANK YOU to all of the artists who support our gallery by participating in our competitions and to those who visit us in person or our on-line store.  We are so thankful for all of you. 

Our juror this year, Candace Law, has selected a wonderful show! Her comments about the show:

"We are in a time when big is everything, an illusion that big is better.

What a treat to enter into the world of “Small”.  Intimate little spaces and whole worlds, from abstracts to nature to man-made.  Working small requires a different vision and skill to execute, but it has its own rewards and treasures.

If was a pleasure and honor to jury this exhibition, and it was hard having to leave good work behind.  Thank you for making me take a deeper look, surprising me and sometimes just making me smile."

Candace Law is a full time artist in the Detroit area. After receiving degrees and working in other fields, she earned a BFA in Architectural Illustration, but found herself drawn to fine art. Her current body of work focuses on encaustic (hot wax) and mixed media, especially incorporating found objects.
