Compete A Tribute to Small Art
U.S. National Deadline: November 30, 2023 – In an age populated by zealous promoters of products and images who seek to supersize almost everything, the MVA Gallery fervently proclaims the virtues of smallness.
We celebrate art in its diminutive, compact and miniature forms because small works can reflect big ideas, big visions and big talent. Small art can tease our senses, challenge our perceptions, influence our thinking and arouse the strongest emotions. So artists, rejoice in this opportunity to submit your small art — traditional and non-traditional. Enchant us with your unique visions by participating in this Tribute To Small Art where your work will find a warm welcome.
Exhibition Dates : January 28, 2024 through February 25, 2024.
