We are excited to present “It’s a Small World Members Show.” The show coincides with “Small Expressions” in the Main Gallery.

“It’s a Small World” can be depicted in a variety of ways; e.g., a small work of art, a view of another country, culture, or international theme representing our commonality, or other interpretation of the interconnectivity of our world. The doors are open to the latitude as how you want to express “It’s a small world.

Congratulations to the 2D, 3D, and Honorable Mention Award Winners!
