All two-dimensional artwork on exhibit is 30 square inches or smaller and all three-dimensional artwork is 90 cubic inches or smaller.
This years’ show features small artworks in various mediums including painting, ceramics, fibre arts, sculpture, etching, mixed media and drawing from over 30 artists.
