2015 People's Choice Winner
"Chair 1" by Trung Pham
Small Works, Big Presents: The Gift of Art
On Display November 16 - December 18, 2016
A juried show and sale highlighting the Northwest’s active contemporary art scene, making small scale, high quality original works of arts and crafts available for holiday gift buying.
This year the jurors were Sarah Dillon Gilmartin, head of the Visual Arts division at Green River College, DeNae McGee chair of the Auburn Arts Commission and Julianne Duncan, a photographer working out of Photographic Center Northwest. Sixty-nine pieces were selected from the over three hundred submitted and range from drawing and painting, to sculpted soap, stone and ceramics, and represent the work of 37 artists. $1,900 in prize money will be awarded to five artists whose work was particularly popular with the jury.
During the first two weeks of the show, you can vote on the People’s Choice Award, the winner of which will receive $400 and their artwork will be featured in the next year’s publicity!
“The Museum likes to support and encourage the arts, and in mounting the Small Works exhibit," notes museum director Patricia Cosgrove, “we offer affordable fine art to the public, away from the hubbub of downtown galleries—and we take a reduced commission, to support artists to the fullest.”
Small Works is open through December 18 and is sponsored by the White River Valley Museum and the City of Auburn Arts Commission.
