FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Fountain House Gallery’s “Small Works: $100 & Under” Presents Hundreds of Original, Affordable Artworks for Collecting, Holiday Gift-Giving
On view: November 10 – December 28, 2022
Reception: November 10, 6-8pm
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. The show, an annual Gallery event that has become a perennial favorite of art lovers, collectors, and holiday shoppers, will open with a Reception on November 10, 2022, from 6:00pm to 8:00pm, and will remain on view through December 28, 2022.
“For this year’s iteration of Small Works, the artists of Fountain House Gallery have created hundreds of pieces of original art, sized at 6 by 6 inches or smaller and priced at $100 or less,” said Gallery Director Rachel Weisman. “Our artists, who customarily work in a variety of dimensions, continue to embrace the annual challenge of creating in the scaled-down format, unleashing their talents on fresh mediums and ideas."
The exhibit offers a unique and affordable opportunity to experience – and collect – an individual artist’s breadth of work. Artworks are sold on a first come, first served basis, and collectors are encouraged to shop directly “off the wall.”
Among the mediums represented in Small Works are acrylic, mixed media, fabric, digital photography, sculpture and jewelry.
This program is funded, in part, by generous support from the Renate, Hans and Maria Hofmann Trust, the Robert Rauschenberg Foundation, the David Rockefeller Fund, and the Laurie M. Tisch Illumination Fund.
