AFA GALLERY IS PROUD TO PRESENT: Small Works, a group exhibition of small format work from over thirty different artists from around the world. United in their scale, the featured artworks explore the variation in style, concept, and technical approach present in contemporary painting, drawing, and sculpture. The pieces that have been created exclusively for the exhibition have maximum dimensions of 16 x 16 x 16 inches (40.5 x 40.5 x 40.5 cm). From the meticulous 18th century paintings on ivory to the illuminated manuscripts of the Renaissance, the miniature is deeply rooted in the history of art. While techniques and subject matter have changed over time, the unique impact of the miniature artwork remains the same. The intimate scale of these works draws the viewer closer, forcing them to engage personally with the artwork and artist.

The exhibition features new works by Michael Alan, Jean-Pierre Arboleda, Sergio Barrale, Casey Baugh, Rick Berry, Troy Brooks, Bill Carman, Sas Christian, Colin Christian, Nicoletta Ceccoli, Sam Wolfe Connelly, Kelly Denato, Rose Freymouth-Frazier, Gris Grimly, Justin Hopkins, Jared Joslin, Jessica Joslin, Robert LaDuke, Chris Leib, David Lipson, Francis Livingston, Alessandra Maria, Pierre Matter, Caitlin T. McCormack, Kathie Olivas, Marc Scheff, Steven Skollar, Pol Turgeon, Hannah Yata, and more.
