SMALL WORKS / BIG HEART
A juried exhibition of small artworks interpreting humanity's love and admiration for the natural world around us.
Fundraiser for MountainTrue.
On View: November 16, 2017 -January 12, 2018
Nature in its many forms has been interpreted by artists since the early cave paintings of Lascaux, France. Our natural environment and the relationships we develop within its context are, indeed, rich with inspiration. 'Small Works / Big Heart' includes small artworks, by 38 artists, inspired by this theme - the artists' love of flora and fauna; seascape and landscape; the celestial and otherworldly.
The exhibition namesake, 'Small Works / Big Heart,' is both a theme and a call to action. The exhibition is slated to run during the holiday season, a time when many of us like to carry out "small works" of kindness that show our love for our communities and our world. With this in mind, CANVAS ArtSpace is committed to donating half of the exhibition proceeds to MountianTrue, an environmental non-profit that champions resilient forests, clean waters, and healthy communities in Western North Carolina.
Please join us in raising funds for this important cause!
