12 years ago I wanted to help new collectors step into an art gallery and feel comfortable starting their collection. Beginning an art collection can be intimidating and sometimes daunting. I wanted to make this process more comfortable and fun. This exhibition is geared toward people who are starting their collections or who want to add to them, without purchasing a huge piece. We started including the “Spectaculars” portion of the exhibition 7 years ago in order to showcase a range of work. It’s easier to purchase a smaller piece, but very interesting to see small pieces juxtaposed with larger ones. This gives the audience an idea of the scope of our artists’ talents. Small Wonders & Spectaculars is a group show dedicated to bringing the precious and petite, as wells as the grand, within reach of collectors.
