Come explore the whimsy and wonderful world of wee things. This community art show has over 70 pieces of art, sized three inches or less. Magnifying glasses, as well as tiny programs, guide you through the miniature experience with dollhouses posing as museum spaces. Quirky and heart-warming, you HAVE to see this show!
Months of building dollhouses has paid off! I’m bringing them into the Concrete Gallery to house the Tiny Art Show AND I got my wee little pop art installation done. The sun is shining and I’m feeling good! Make sure you come to the Reception at the First Friday Artwalk @salemartwalk 5-8pm to explore all of the amazing tiny art. Seriously, the submissions have been excellent and there is so much to explore with provided magnifying glasses !
I was a weird kid and always wanted a Barbie house. I never got one, but I did make ridiculous miniature things like soup cans out of pencil tops. So I got to bring up a bit from my past and make this tiny Pop Art soup can today. And with the power of a color printer I made this cute little label. Just think what I would have made with one of those back then!!! Wow, we have come a long way!
Did you make mini things as a kid?
