The Dennos Museum Center offers art patrons an opportunity to purchase original works of art by talented artists in the region at the museum’s 5th annual Small Works art sale.
Artists have been invited to submit up to 10 works of art in any media with measurements no greater than 5” x 7” x 5”. All art work is priced at $50 or less. The size restrictions have changed this year to allow for more small pottery and sculptures.
The Small Works Sale has been organized to benefit artists and provide art patrons the opportunity to acquire works by artists in a price range accessible to many collectors.
There is no application fee or jury process for the sale. If the work of art meets the size and price parameters it will be allowed in the sale.
The Museum’s goal for the sale is to provide artists with additional sales opportunities and encourage patrons to buy original art at an affordable price. This is the fifth year of the Small Works sale. Last year 110 artists brought in about 1,000 works to sell. The sale was a great success with over $7,000 in gross sales.
