Southern Arts Society’s first exhibit of the year Small Wonders, features artwork with an image size of 6 x 8 inches or less. Artists from around the region have submitted over seventy works of art to be judged for cash prizes. Prizes for First, Second, Third Place and three Merit Awards will be presented at their reception on February 3.
 
Artists were challenged to produce works in a smaller format showing their skill at planning and executing artwork in miniature. Work in the show can be found in a variety of media: oil, acrylic and pastel paintings, mixed media, wood, and collage. 
 
While working on a smaller scale is not always easy for the artist, it benefits the buyer who wants to purchase art at a more affordable price. Much of the work on display is priced under $100. This is a great opportunity to start your own art collection or buy gifts for friends and family.
 
The public is invited to meet participating artists at a reception on Saturday February 3rd from 6-8 pm. Awards will be presented at 7 pm. This is a Free event and dress is casual. Winners will then be posted on Southern Arts Society’s website and Facebook page. The exhibit is on view through March 1, 2024. Artwork in the exhibit is available for sale.
