Annual Small Works Show

The Haywood County Arts Council's seventh annual small works show, “It’s a Small, Small Work,” will be held November 19 - December 27, 2014 in Gallery 86. There will be an Artist Reception on December 5 from 6:00 – 9:00 p.m. and a Night Before Christmas reception on December 13 from 6:00 – 9:00 p.m.

The show provides a unique opportunity for budding artists to exhibit their work, as well as the opportunity for more seasoned artists to test their boundaries. The non-juried show is open to all artists with a permanent address in the Blue Ridge National Heritage Area, which includes the Qualla Boundary or any of the following counties: Alleghany, Ashe, Avery, Buncombe, Burke, Caldwell, Cherokee, Clay, Graham, Haywood, Henderson, Jackson, Macon, Madison, McDowell, Mitchell, Polk, Rutherford, Surry, Swain, Transylvania, Watauga, Wilkes, Yadkin, and Yancey.

All pieces in the show must be exactly 12” or smaller in every dimension, including base, matting, and frame. All work is priced at $300 or less and has been created in the past two years.

The Haywood County Arts Council’s small works show was launched in 2008 in response to a declining economy, and to demonstrate that original artwork is affordable and fun to purchase for gifts at Christmastime. Most businesses, homes and apartments can accommodate smaller works of art—and the show promotes buying local and regional work to help support artists in western North Carolina.
