Petit mais GRAND

Well, that worked out well....

I have been invited to participate in a small format show, organized by the regional art group Autour de Nous. Forty to fifty artists will each produce four works measuring 6" x 6" that will be hung together in a 2 x 2 arrangement. A few 3-D works, no more than 8" tall, will be included. The show, titled Petit mais GRAND, aims to offer affordable, original art in a wide variety of media to the community.

No doubt the organizers were expecting me to submit works in fibre, but when I suggested these little collages, made as an assignment for my current on-line Jane Davies class, they thought that would be fine too. Tentative titles: Jazz Fest 1, Jazz Fest 2, etc. Suggestions welcome!

The show will be held at the Galérie Éphémère, 418 Avenue St.-Charles, Vaudreuil-Dorion, April 24 - May 7. A vernissage is planned for Thursday, April 21, from 6 - 10 pm.

It's just great when completing a class assignment actually helps you meet a deadline for an upcoming show and propels you forward on a path to finding a new direction for your work. Can't you just see these in a bigger format? Maybe in cloth?
