International artist Kellie Miller invites you to the Small Wonders exhibition, which explores pushing the boundaries of art practice, by encouraging artists to submit works for a particular concept, “Small Wonders”.
We understand jewellery, as being small and precious yet in other art forms big is good and small seen as less. Yet often, small paintings can take more time and consideration from the artists then larger pieces. This exhibition demonstrates that small is never less and can be beautiful.
“By challenging the practice of my artists, I hope they will discover new approaches, techniques and produce amazing new works. Equally, it is exciting for me to give an artist a task and to see how it will manifest in their work. I feel incredibly fortunate to be in a position to facilitate art. To witness a seed of an idea grow and bear fruit is magical. And this happens every time we hold an exhibition.” – Kellie Miller
If the artist employs mainly large broad strokes in their paintings, to hone down into producing smaller works, can make them reflect on the details and quality of their mark-making. This can help them to clarify their intentions in their art and influence the nature of future works. Therefore, changing the scale of their works can have a profound and significant effect.
This exhibition not only celebrates that good things come in small packages but marks the gallery’s 6th birthday at Market Street.
Works can be seen by Steve Fricker – Surrealist, Fantasy Painting, Clare Maria Woods – Abstract Landscapes, David Hayward – Abstract Landscapes, Angela Edwards – Urban Inspired paintings, Helen Phoenix – Bird Paintings, Davide di Taranto – Portraits, and new artist to the gallery Jo Wonder – Fantasy Paintings.
The exhibition runs from 23rd November – 9th December 2019, and can be viewed 11am-6pm Mon- Sat and 11am – 5pm on Sun.
