I think I've mention before that one of my many hats is a gallery assistant at the New Hampshire Institute of Art. We just finished hanging one of our biggest shows of the year, the Minumental. This show is quite fun. Students, faculty, alumni and artists in the community all participate. The only requirement is that every piece is under 2x2x2 inches, and priced under $44.95. This year we received at outstanding 532 pieces. It was amazing to see these miniature pieces of art fill two gallery spaces. I submitted a couple pieces myself. I like to do a three dimensional for this show. Probably less than 25% of the work received is three dimensional, and I think it's a great opportunity to experiment with a different technique. The show opens tomorrow at noon at both Amherst and French Galleries in Manchester, NH. Better get there early if you have an eye to buy one of the pieces though! Sales can be quite competitive!
