Tidnish Bridge Art Gallery - Small Wonders 6 x 6 x 2016


I'm very excited about being part of this exhibition at one of my very favourite spots in Nova Scotia, Tidnish, at the Tidnish Bridge Art Gallery, which is an intimate very friendly and fun space. I'm looking very forward to seeing old friend's, meeting new ones and seeing all of this art!

Here's the down low, from Tidnish Bridge Art Gallery all about the exhibit.

.Tidnish Bridge Art Gallery challenged artists from far & wide to produce tiny art,  measuring 6 X 6 inches for an Exhibition entitled Small Wonders 6 X 6 X 2016.  Sixteen artists will be displaying 34 works at the Gallery between August 13 and September 5.  Various media & materials have been used including fibre art (rug hooking), acrylic, oil, egg tempera, watercolour, charcoal, photography, screenprinting, seaglass and mixed media.  The artists, both emerging and professional,  hail from Tidnish, Amherst,  Truro,  Parrsboro, Apple River, N.S.  and Baie Verte Sackville, Riverview, Moncton & Coverdale, N.B.  It’s truly remarkable to see what creativity can be unleashed within such a small space.  Join us and meet the artists at the Opening Reception on Saturday, August 13th from 1 to 4 p.m.  Exhibition support from Visual Arts Nova Scotia is gratefully acknowledged.

That sounds very cool; hope you give a follow-up review of the art there! I would think small art would be almost as challenging as really large paintings!

Oh I will so! I'm really looking froward to seeing it all, such a variety of mediums!
Well for me I was never so interested in really big paintings. Never imagined I'd be painting saml with iddy biddy paint brushes and strokes. But seems to really work for my OCD! Large paintings were always a huge financial investment of money, time and energy before you even get started. Big paintings I think are for folks who live large, in big houses or they work in museums as opposed to regular folks homes.

You know the Mona Lisa is just small.

Each to her/his own. Both sizes have their unique challenges for sure.

Being vertically challenged myself, I prefer small to large! :D

Well that's a practical good reason. Anything big is mostly not better unless it's Big Love!

We have a radio show here on Public Radio CBC called the Vinyl Cafe with Stuart Maclean. It's a fictional show about Dave and Morly a husband and wife and their family. Dave owns the 'Smallest Vinyl Record Store.' His motto is " We might not be big, but we're small". That really works for me!
