Hickory – The entry dates for Full Circle Arts’ “Tiny Art Show” are fast approaching. We are looking for artists from the area to enter this widely acclaimed exhibition. Small works can be put in many places in the home or office to give the owner pleasure every time he/she looks at it. Generally pieces of “tiny art” are very affordable and make wonderful gifts. Make no mistake these small gems are just as demanding and difficult for the artist to create and portray as larger paintings and sculptures, but they project an intimate quality and appeal to the imagination in all of us.
The artwork can be no larger than 7 inches in any direction and the total with frame and/or pedestal for 3-D works can be no larger than twelve inches side to side or top to bottom. The entry fee for this show is only ten dollars for up to 5 entries. Ribbons will be given and visitors will vote on the artwork to determine a People’s Choice Award. In the past we have had wonderful responses to this show and have sold quite a few pieces of art.
All work should be suitably presented and properly wired for hanging. We cannot accommodate two dimensional artwork which does not have wire hangers because of our hanging system. Artwork should conform to the art world’s general idea of good taste. We prefer not to accept standing photo frames.
Please deliver artwork to our gallery at 42-B Third Street NW, Hickory during our regular gallery hours, Thurs. Jan. 10 and Fri., Jan. 11, 11 am – 5 pm and Sat. Jan. 12, 10 am – 2 pm. Reception will be Thursday, Jan, 24, 6:00 – 8pm.
