NotBIG (4) the Exhibit: A Juried Small Arts Competition

Art Show, Gallery, Drawings/Works on Paper, Mixed Media, Sculpture, Ceramics/Pottery, Painting, Photography
Local and National Artists Chosen as Finalists Awards and Artist Reception, August 4th, 5-8pm, 2017 M S Rezny Studio/Gallery is pleased to announce the finals in the national small arts juried competition notBIG(4) The Exhibit. There was no intended theme for this art competition; the only requirement was that the artwork had to be 12”x12” or smaller, including the frame. 136 artists from 32 states submitted 440 artworks for consideration. This year’s juror Kurt Gohde, Professor of Art, Transylvania University, Lexington, KY, selected 45 artworks to be in the exhibit. “The artworks chosen for this exhibition represent a wide range of media, styles, and conceptual approaches to making art. They resonate with presence much larger than their measurements in inches. They challenge a statement we have all heard too many times, a statement more memorable for alliteration than for any connection to reality—bigger may not be better.” A First Prize award of $500 and three $100 Honorable Mentions will be presented at the artist reception, August 4th, 5-8pm. A People’s Choice Award will be presented at the end of the exhibition where winning artist receives monies collected from votes placed at $1 each. The small-scale artwork can also be rewarding for the consumer as everyone has a place for a small piece of art. Nearly half of the finalists are regional artists which fits the demographics of the entries submitted.
