FALLBROOK – Brandon Gallery is seeking entries for the 11th annual “Small Works of Art Exhibition 2017,” an open juried and judged show held Nov. 1 – Nov. 30. The show celebrates the appeal of fine art that invites intimate inspection and delight by the viewer.
Work may be any medium. Two-dimensional work may be no larger than 14 1/2 inches on any side, including frame. Wire hangers only, ends wrapped for safety. 3D work is not to exceed size limits, weigh no more than 20 pounds and must have a stable base when set on a flat surface.
Chick Curtis, award-winning artist and teacher, will be judging the show.
“I have an enthusiasm for living, a desire to create beautiful and mysterious things and a wish to help others find their own artistic voice,” Curtis said. “I would like to be remembered for the encouragement I have given to the many people who come to me for artistic guidance. The friendships I have made in my teaching are more valuable than I can describe. My wish is to interpret the world around me and all its many facets in a way that becomes part history, part beauty, part intrigue, and part joy.”
The gallery has listed some things of which to take note. First, all entries must be delivered directly to the gallery between 11 a.m. and 3 p.m. Oct. 20-21. All entries will be notified of being declined or accepted by email, Oct. 25. An opening reception will be held Nov. 11 at 4 p.m.
