Call for Work: It’s a Small, Small Work Show

November brings the It’s a Small, Small Work show back to the Haywood County Arts Council’s Gallery & Gifts. For a $20 entry fee, any artist that is at least a part-time resident of Western North Carolina is welcome to submit a minimum of three pieces and a maximum of five pieces of work for display. Artwork will be accepted only from October 19 – 24. Application, entry fee, and art must be submitted together.

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.

To meet the small qualifications, each piece of art must be no larger than 12” x 12” x 12” including base, matting, and frame. All work must be for sale, priced at $300 or less, and must have been created in the last two years. All mediums are welcome. “This show proves there’s no such thing as small art. It’s a community favorite – great for holiday gifts – and the variety of artists represented in one show is unparalleled within our gallery,” said Lindsey Solomon, HCAC Executive Director. The It’s a Small, Small Work show is open to all community artists, whether they have shown in a gallery before or not.
