Small Art with a Big Impact

Photo by Jack Duford

Who says: “Bigger is better?” Who hasn’t be charmed by looking at a small small painted Fabrage egg or peering through a microscope to see the wondrous beauty that nature conceals just below the surface.

While small is beautiful, it can also be very powerful. As Sculptor Henry Moore once said, “There is a difference between scale and size. A small sculpture only three or four inches big can have about it a monumental scale. .. a small thing only a few inches big might seem, to have a monumental scale, to be any size.

This year the theme of the Small Works Show is imagination. Through imagination, perception becomes a dream, dreams become reality. Though small in size, this art has big impact. Its very smallness draws attention and its smallness paradoxically tends to amplify rather than diminish…

Come and see how local artists have harnessed their imagination undefined on a small scale but with great impact.

Pick up at Closing - Sunday-Monday, September 7-8 from 4-6 pm

"Gazing at Nympheas" by Dennis Perrin

Open Juried Show

Media - All art media types accepted

Show Description - York and Beyond - Landscapes and Seascapes with a feeling of fall.

Juror - Dennis Perrin

Dennis Perrin can best be described as a painter of light as it illuminates and describes the subject. Mr. Perrin always chooses to paint in front of the subject, not content to settle for photography or video as painting material. Dennis has been called a painterly American Impressionist in the Boston School
“Gazing at Nympheas” by Dennis Perrin tradition.

A former member of the Guild of Boston Artists, Mr. Perrin paints in order to express his great love for the beauty seen all around, especially in his immediate environment. Dennis studied at the New Orleans Academy of Fine Art with M. Dell Weller, who taught him the power of seeing and translating that vision into paint. He continues his studies exploring the subtleties of light through paint. Among his favorite subjects are the human figure, clothes and nude, flowers, still life, and the interior space, often populated with one or more figures. He is also an avid plain air painter of the New England landscape.
