Small Favors: Think Inside the Box

March 3, 2017 @ 5:00 pm - May 27, 2017 @ 5:00 pm

The Center for Art in Wood, in collaboration with The Clay Studio, presents Small Favors: Think Inside the Box, which will be on view on the Center’s Len Scherock Museum Store Art Wall and in the Korman Gallery at The Clay Studio. The exhibition engages new and established artists, challenging them to produce work using varied materials that fit inside a 4-inch acrylic cube. In 2006, The Clay Studio conceived the Small Favors exhibition as an effort to advance fine craft to the entry-level collector in addition to seasoned collectors. Over the past decade, thousands of artists have participated, responding to the boundaries of the contained space and the opportunity to create small scale sculpture.
