THE BIG SMALL SHOW, features over 100 artists showing small painting, drawing and 3 dimensional works!
It's a weekend of art, music, wine, food and a silent auction and hundreds of people are expected to attend the event. Admission to the Big Small Show is free of charge, and all artworks are for sale.
This is the fourth annual BIG SMALL SHOW at Drawing Rooms. Our biggest exhibit of the year includes over 90 artists from the NY/NJ/CT metropolitan area. Our goal is to create a show with a large array of innovative and exceptional new paintings, drawings and 3-dimensional works to produce an exhibition that surveys recent art in our area.
For THE BIG SMALL SHOW we make full use of our multi-gallery room format to gather a group of small works from each artist, grouping them in context together with one another, creating visual, formal and conceptual connections, amplifying themes and deepening ways of understanding the works. Curator Anne Trauben has connected with many artists new to us for this exhibition along with artists who are part of our year-round community. Many of the artists in the show as well as other artists invited from the community have donated a work to the art auction that accompanies the exhibit.
