Small Art/Big Stories: 17 Miniature Exhibitions

June 8 – July 28, 2019
An opening reception will be held on Friday, June 14
from 5 – 7pm.

This event is free and open to the public.


When you look at artwork, do you wonder, “What is the story behind this painting?” or “What was the artist’s inspirational source?”  The current exhibit at the Montminy Gallery explores how art paired with art of storytelling can add another dimension to an exhibition experience. The new show, Small Art/Big Stories: 17 Miniature Exhibitions, explores the power of this pairing. To add an additional twist, the 17 curated artists were asked to create 3 to 7 pieces of work that were no larger than 8” x 10”. Each artist also wrote one narrative that tells the story of their work and how all of the pieces tie together. From miniature paintings to tiny furniture, this exhibition captures the creative energy of some of our most talented local artists. Although the dimensions may be minute, the exhibited work proves that profound narratives can come in small packages. 

 “I found creating artwork for this show to be very challenging and inspiring.”  Kirsty Buchanan, Associate Professor of Fashion Design at Stephens College
