This year's diverse exhibition of intimately scaled works by gallery artists and special guests explores materiality, nature, and socio-political commentary. Innovative works reward an extended look and may have viewers doing a double-take! Some highlights include Davis Choun's constructions from upcycled clothespins, Greg Sand's vintage found photograph collages, and Tim Tate's Examiner Series - a group of video-linked sculptures examining the parts of our current world that feel "out of balance." Although small in scale, the works in this collection convey the sensibility and proficiency of their accomplished makers.

Small Work, Big Impact is an annual exhibition that allows our clientele to discover and acquire exquisite original works by artists new to the gallery. Some of the contributing artists include:

North Carolina-based studio painter Dana Brown works with encaustic, using beeswax and resin to convey elaborate depictions of botanical scenes, farm equipment, urban backdrops, and other mechanically complex machinery. Utilizing tools designed for ceramists, Brown carves, fills, layers, and fuses the wax, creating areas to be filled with pigment. Her industrial scenes evoke a sense of wonder, guiding the eye through geometrically complex landscapes teeming with rich detail.

Clark earned his BFA in Graphic Design, focusing primarily on print design and alternative typography. During this time, he discovered collage. This method of hands-on, spatial development took a major role in his digital work as well as his physical works on wood and paper. His drawings and paintings have been shown nationally including exhibitions in the Carnegie Museum of Art and the Chautauqua Institution. Clark is a 2012 Flight School Fellow and was named Pittsburgh’s 2015 Emerging Artist of the Year by the Pittsburgh Center for the Arts. He is the recipient of three Design Excellence Awards from the American Institute of Graphic Arts, Pittsburgh.

Deborah Czeresko is a New York City-based artist and designer, best known for their work with glass. Their work references food, art history, gender, and their experiences as a queer artist. Czeresko first started working with glass at the New York Experimental Glass Workshop, now known as Urban Glass in 1987 and received their MFA from Tulane University in 1992. In 2019 Czeresko captivated viewers as the winner of the inaugural season of Netflix's Blown Away. As a glass artist, Czeresko creates work that challenges societal norms and speaks on queer issues.

The dynamic conceptual sculptures of artist Hoss Haley are found in discerning private and public collections across the country. His unique talent with metal allows him to create contemporary statements that simultaneously feature movement and mass. Haley's most recent work incorporates strong color. Having learned machining, steel fabrication, and blacksmithing as a young man in the American Southwest, Hoss Haley now lives and works near Penland, North Carolina.

Jennifer Halvorson’s sculptures explore the simple beauty of familiar household objects that she has cast, manipulated, or collaged to evoke a range of emotions and nostalgia. Her glasswork transports and connects viewers both to their memories of family and childhood and to society's collective, sometimes blurred, remembrance of the past.
