A Juried Exhibition   Sept 23 - Nov 3, 2012

Submission Deadline: Sept 3, 2012

Small work allows the experience of getting up close and personal with the artwork. The size of the artwork forces one to go in and really look. "Smaller beckons: get close, touch, relate - they inspire a reduction of the psychic distance between one thing and another; between people and things"
- from the book and philosophy: "Wabi Sabi"
