The Tiny Show in years past has been a community favorite with Pence staff, members, and visitors. Continuing in the spirit of our last Tiny Show, which was held in 2017, this exhibit features “tiny” works of art – modest-sized pieces limited to 5” x 7”. Various local and regional artists were invited to display their small but spectacular creations, including Valentina Arenas, Tamsen Armstrong, Karen Burns, Deziree Dizon, Jim Darke, and Amy Vidra, among many others.
Ranging from serious to whimsical, the works of these artists challenge viewers to stop for a moment and really take the time to look closer. Their works are personal, intimate, and brimming with the tiniest of details, including stitched red thread, shadows cast by leaves, and the barely-there whiskers of a playful possum. We encourage you to explore every work of art and see what details you can discover. While the works themselves may be small, the creativity and artistic talent they reveal is immeasurable.
