Small Format Exhibition
March 1 – April 13
Opening Reception March 1, 6:30-9pm
Julia Crocetto, Juror
Appreciate the little things in life with the National Collage Society’s Small Format Exhibition. The exhibit features artists from 40 states and 6 countries, all of whom are active members of the National Collage Society. All the works within the exhibit are 4″x 6″; however, each piece commands the space it inhabits and draws the viewer in to the little details provided in these extravagant works of art. Just like a postcard, the works carry with them the experience of the artist including their travels, emotions, and conceptions. They’re adorned with all manner of materials, some abstract and others thematic, some ornate, and others simple.
The exhibition is well-traveled and has been featured in New York, Washington, Ohio, and numerous other locations throughout North America. This is a unique opportunity for Art Center members and patrons to view this collective body of work in one location. With more than 90 expected entries, this exhibit has something for everyone. Gayle Gerson, an exhibiting artist in the Small Format Exhibition, states “it is as difficult to do a small piece as it is to do a large one, or maybe more difficult. Just because it’s small doesn’t means it’s not important.”
The juror for this exhibition is mixed media and fiber artist Julia Crocetto. Crocetto received her MFA from the Oregon College of Art and Craft. She is currently an instructor at Colorado Mesa University, the Artist-in-Residence for 970West Studio, and a drawing and fiber arts instructor for The Art Center. Her ability to work with a variety of materials and styles, as well as her knowledge of the arts, makes her an ideal juror for this exhibit.
