Hickory – Full Circle Arts is announcing a Call to Artists for those wanting to participate in the 4th Annual “Tiny Arts Show”. This exhibition has always sparked curiosity and interest to view what artists devise to create with a very limited format.

Intake for the show is Thursday, July 7th and Friday, July 8th, from 11:00 am – 5:00 pm and Saturday July 9th, from 10:00 am – 2:00 pm. Artists may submit up to 5 works of art for a $10.00 fee.

All work must be ready for hanging with proper wires. Anything (except sculpture or 3-D works) not presented with wires will be rejected.

This year requirements have changed slightly because of popularity and a limited amount of display area in our gallery. The parameters for the artwork this year have been decreased further to establish a truly “tiny” show. Artwork may be no larger than 7 inches in any direction, with the frame or base/pedestal limited to 12 inches on the outside dimensions. Work may not have been in a previous Full Circle Arts exhibition. FCA asks a 20% commission from Exhibiting members, 30% commission from Associate members and 35% from non-members.

Our judge for the competition is Clarissa Starnes, Galleria and Collections Manager, Hickory Museum of Art. “Tiny” prizes and beautiful ribbons handmade by our member Genie Greenlaw will be awarded. We will also have a People’s Choice Award which we have had in the past. Reception for the exhibition will be held Thursday, July 14, 6:00 – 8:00pm, Refreshments will be provided.

Success for this show is only possible if all artists and the public in the area are aware of our competition and desire to show their tiny masterpieces to the rest of the Hickory public. The exhibition will be on display during Full Circle Arts’ gallery business hours Wed.-Friday 11:00 am – 5:00 pm and Sat.10:00 am – 2:00 pm from July 14 through August 13, 2016.

Full Circle Arts is dedicated to offering artists in the Hickory area the opportunity to show their finest and most creative work in a gallery setting.
