Small is Beautiful Exhibition

Small is Beautiful is the new exhibition at the Fittleworth Gallery. It is a celebration of the beauty, skill and presence of small pictures. We have asked all our Gallery artists to produce works that creatively use a smaller space but still have the charisma to demand attention. The result is an exciting and broad range of artworks from contemporary to traditional covering landscape, portraits, abstracts, animals, assemblages and digital abstracts.

Phil Randles commented “It is fascinating to see how different artists approach creating art when confined to a small space. It can be more difficult than having the luxury of a larger space. It also means we can offer original works of art at affordable prices.”

The exhibition opens on 2nd December and runs until 17th January 2021.
