Small Favors: Think Inside the Box
March 3 through May 27, 2017
From The Clay Studio:
Thousands of artists from around the country have participated in our annual Small Favors exhibition in Philadelphia over the past decade. There is a single parameter, to fit the work inside a 4-inch cube. Some artists treat the cube as a small gallery or diorama, while others use the challenge to explore new work on a small scale. By responding to both opportunities and boundaries Small Favors: Thinking Inside the Box will offer visitors a highly concentrated yet widely varied collection of intimate affordable sculpture.
Juror's Statement from Michael Radyk:
I was very excited to be a juror for the Small Favors: Think Inside the Box exhibition this year. The selected artists represent a marriage of concentration, sensitivity, and design. The exhibition makes small noble, and invites us to stop, focus, and look. In the selected works you can find big ideas, individuality, and material awareness. For me, the overall goal of an exhibition like Small Favors is to find delight and joy in those tiny spaces.
