Good things come in small packages ... or on small canvases.  In this exhibition, artists have the opportunity to create 6"x 6" wall art made with BIG love.  The exhibition will run from the beginning to the end of December, 2017.  This will be the featured art and will take pride of place in Higher Grounds Gallery.  

We will have an Open House on December 2, 2017 with refreshments all day.  Artists may come and go throughout the day.  

Below are two examples of the magic that may be created within a 5"x5" border.  

Art by Mimi Lamp  and Jen Hajj

Theme:  There is no specific theme and this is not a judged show, although images must be appropriate for public viewing because children do visit the gallery.

Size Limitations for 2-D Pieces:  Images may not exceed 36 square inches or 6" x 6".   Gallery wrapped without frame is acceptable, as long as the canvas sides are painted and the image size limitation is maintained. All artwork MUST be wired for hanging. 

Mediums:  All entries must be originals.  No giclees.  

Numbers of Pieces:  We will aim to exhibit 2 pieces per Artist providing we have room.  We will invite you to replace any sold items.

Hanging:  There is no hanging fee, but there is a mandatory 30% gallery commission so please price accordingly. 

Gallery Assistance:  This show will run over 5 week-ends.  Support your art and that of your fellow artists by volunteering for a Saturday early or late shift at the gallery.  The Gallery will be open from Friday to Sunday, from 11am to 4pm. 

Working Artists (optional):  While in the gallery, artists are encouraged to work on a piece of artwork.  This is optional, but is a great way to promote your own artwork.

Sales:  All artwork must be for sale.  Sold artwork may be replaced with a piece of similar size or smaller. Sales will be processed through the gallery with applicable taxes.  Artists who sell artwork will be paid within 4 weeks of end of show minus applicable commissions.  sions.
