FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Fountain House Gallery’s “Small Works: $100 & Under” Presents Original, Affordable Artworks for Collecting, Holiday Gift-Giving
On view (online): November 19 – December 23, 2020
NEW YORK CITY – Fountain House Gallery – the premier venue in New York City representing artists with mental illness – today announced the upcoming exhibition Small Works: $100 & Under. This show, an annual Gallery event, will remain on view online from November 19, 2020 through December 23, 2020.
Small Works offers more than 200 pieces of original art, sized at 6 by 6 inches or smaller and priced at $100 or less. Over the years, this exhibition has become a perennial favorite with art lovers, collectors, and holiday shoppers. This year, as Fountain House Gallery remains closed to the public due to the pandemic, works can be acquired by contacting the Gallery via the online exhibition page. Options for “safe” pick-up or delivery of purchased works are available.
Small works can have a big impact, lending themselves to hanging solo or in groupings. Fountain House Gallery artists, who customarily work in a variety of mediums and sizes, continue to embrace the opportunity to create in the scaled-down format of this yearly show, unleashing their talents on fresh mediums and ideas.
Among the mediums represented in Small Works are acrylic, mixed media, fabric, and digital photography, with ceramic and jewelry pieces included in the mix.
The online exhibition can be viewed at: https://www.artsy.net/show/fountain-house-gallery-small-works-100-dollars-and-under-2.
This program is funded, in part, by generous support from the Hearst Foundation, Inc., the Renate, Hans and Maria Hofmann Trust, the Robert Rauschenberg Foundation, the David Rockefeller Fund, and the Laurie M. Tisch Illumination Fund.
