“Small art, BIG exhibit.” 

Art does not have to be large to make a statement. Some of the most powerful pieces of art are the smallest. Small art is deliberate and intimate; it draws the viewer in closer, causes them linger. Small art can be playful and whimsical like a toy, familiar like everyday objects, or precious like a small altar.

Minute Musings is a regional juried exhibit of art that is 12 inches and smaller. Over 250 works of art were entered by artists from all over the Midwest but only 69 works of art were chosen to exhibit by curators Jessica Segal and Madeline Henry. Jessica is the gallery director at Union Street Gallery and Madeline is a studio artist who is a ceramic artist with a background in architecture. The studio artists at USG are part of a collaborative that is very involved in the artistic process at the gallery, such as curating and judging exhibits.

The exhibit will include 69 works of art by 45 talented artists from the Midwest region. Art exhibiting includes painting, drawing, photography, sculpture, ceramics, digital art, collage, assemblage, mixed media and video. Union Street Gallery strives to offer professional exhibit opportunities to regional and local artists, emphasizing the importance of our own local art scene, as well as shinning a light on talent close to home.

The opening reception for this exhibit is Friday April 25, from 6-9pm. The reception is free and open to the public. Many of the exhibit artists, as well as the jurors, will be present to engage the public and answer questions.  Refreshments will be served.
