Curated by Rhonda Cooper
Duration: June 28 – September 13, 2015
Reception: Sunday, June 28, from 1 – 4 PM

IAM Pocket Sized invited artists from around the world to create art that fits in the palm of your hand! I AM Pocket Sized exhibits a large survey of paintings, drawings, collages, sculpture, and more.

In today’s art world, where the notion that bigger is better seems to be too-often taken for granted, it’s refreshing to see that contemporary artists are continuing to produce work on a small scale as well. While small-scale paintings and sculptures, or maquettes, have often been produced as preliminary studies for larger-scale works, the artists represented in the IAM’s current exhibition demonstrate that small works hold a valid and unique place of their own in an art world often dominated by more sizable creations.
