MIGHTY MINIS @ MELANIE CARR GALLERY. JANUARY 27-APRIL 8, 2018CURATED BY SUZAN SHUTAN In the art world where bigness reigns, thirty contemporary artists from United States and abroad have come together to reflect and respond to working small. For centuries, artists have utilized pint-size scales to depict and explore cherished, esteemed, and intimate subjects. The contemporary miniature can be seen as an approach to art making that marries craft and concept with gemlike details of tiny treasures. Despite our fast-paced world, small works require giving time for reflection and thought. The reward may be the element of surprise.
