Sun-Sentinel Writeup for Small Stuff 2

On page 4A! :-o Awesome!

 

Small Stuff 2 art exhibit boasts, well .... small art

Minuscule works represent big ideas, immediate gratification.

Cash and carry. That's how to maneuver Small Stuff 2, a group art show that offers holiday deals for some tasty visual morsels. This is Bear and Bird Boutique & Gallery's second edition of the exhibit in which all pictures and objects measure at most 8 by 10 inches.

 

But the ideas behind each piece are big and weirdly delightful. Some examples include Jason Limon's I Don't Know robot, an acrylic on wood that could serve well in the office as cubicle decor; and Kelly Vivanco's cameo of a stoic tomboy, frog tucked neatly in her lapel pocket. Oh, and make sure to catch Sandalwood's Cat Whisperer by May Ann Lucidine. It summons the faintest ghost of Edvard Munch's The Scream, but despair is eschewed and, instead, sweet snips of autumn and winter float around the face of its delicate heroine.

 

More than three dozen local and national artists fill out the lineup. A caveat: You like it, you buy it, you take it home. No leaving art to languish on the gallery's walls until you find time to pick it up.
