THE BIG SMALL SHOW 2014, 12/11/14 - 2/8/15
FUNDRAISER GALA 2014, 12/13/14, 6-9pm
This is the second annual BIG SMALL SHOW at DRAWING ROOMS. Our biggest exhibit of the year, THE BIG SMALL SHOW includes close to 100 artists from the NY/NJ Metro Area in our nine gallery rooms. Last year our goal was to create a show with a large array of innovative and exceptional new paintings. This year we included framed drawings and 3-dimensional works. We wanted to produce an exhibition that was a more complete survey of recent art in our area and we extended the show to 2/8/15. For THE BIG SMALL SHOW 2014, we made full use of our multi-gallery room format to gather a small group of works from each artist in context together, creating visual, formal and conceptual connections, amplifying themes and deepening ways of understanding the works.
THE BIG SMALL SHOW 2014 was curated by Anne Trauben. Featured artists included Aileen Bassis, Alan Walker, Alberte Bernier, Alice Harrison, Anne Trauben, Austin Thomas, Barb Stork, Barbara M.
