Small Favors 2019

The Clay Studio’s popular annual Small Favors exhibitions have been challenging and engaging artists for 14 years. Works must follow a single parameter: to fit inside a 4-inch cube. Some artists treat the cube like a small gallery or diorama, while others use the challenge to explore new work on a small scale. Application fee supports our programming. We are thrilled that this year's juror is Brian Giniewski, former Resident Artist and current Board Member. Apply to this Clay Studio tradition by February 4. Selected artists will be informed by February 8th, work is due by February 22nd. The exhibition is from April 20 - June 9.
