Arlene's Artist Materials and R Gallery at Arlene’s are pleased to be accepting applications for our upcoming Juried Small Work Show. Just in time for the Holidays, the show will run Friday, 12/03/21, through Saturday, 01/08/22 with an opening reception on 12/03/21 from 4:30 to 5:30pm. Since 2017 we have presented 23 exhibitions featuring over 70 talented artists working in the Capital Region. 


This exhibition is devoted to works on a small scale, with each piece coming in under 11” by 14”, unframed. Small Works are a great way to showcase a wide variety of artwork and hopefully find the perfect home for pieces. Supporting our local art community is important to Arlene’s as well as providing meaningful exposure of artists' work. We are tirelessly working on building an engaged audience of individuals who are serious about discovering locally made art.
