Over 200 Pieces of Art on Display at Gallery Calapooia’s Second Annual Big Show of Little Art

It’s not every day a person can peer into the mind of another. However, right now at Gallery Calapooia, the spacious room’s walls are filled with little windows into the creative imaginations of 20 local artists.

The Second Annual Big Show of Little Art opened its doors to the public for their reception on Feb. 1 from 6 to 8 p.m., welcoming the eight by eight inch creations of 20 local artists with cookies and punch. The exhibit remains open to the community until Feb. 22, Tuesday through Saturday 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Over 200 pieces of art wait to be admired by those willing to venture to Flinn Block on 1st Avenue in Albany.

In addition to their variety of acrylic, water color, and oil hanging pieces, guests can also find collages, photography, glass, and ceramics. An artistic medium for anyone’s preferred taste can be found in this colorful corner of town. In the event that a patron falls head-over-heels for a particular piece, it can be purchased with the option of adding an artist-made card for that final personalized touch as a gift for a loved one.

Whether searching for that perfect sitting room wall adornment, or craving a unique visual  experience, The Second Annual Big Show of Little Art celebrates the quiet beauty in our community.
