Small Favors: Think Inside the Box

Application will be available through Slideroom starting October 11, 2016. Applications will be accepted through January 15, 2017. No paper applications will be accepted.

Our Guest Juror this year is Michael Radyk, Director of Education at The American Craft Council.

View works from past Small Favors Exhibitions.

Small Favors engages artist’s creativity in new and exciting ways with the challenge of making pieces on a very small scale. For some artists, the work they create is similar to what they normally make but at a reduced scale. Others use it as an opportunity to break away from what they create in their daily studio practice. Regardless of this choice, the works exhibited are incredibly varied in material, form, and aesthetics. Though small in scale the artworks created for this exhibition are huge in impact. Each work is exhibited in a four-inch plexiglas wall mounted cube. Small Favors will be on view from March 2 – April 30, 2017.

Conceived of in 2006, Small Favors grew out The Studio's efforts to offer accessible, high-quality artworks that appeal to art enthusiasts of all ages: for seasoned collectors who are challenged for space it allows them to continue to collect work by artists they love. For young art collectors it provides a financially accessible entry point.

It is our sincere hope that offering a juried exhibition of this kind brings to light new makers and broadens the audience we reach through the display of these unique works of art.A complete application consists of the following:
