BROOKLYN, NY – 440 Gallery celebrates small-scale creativity and innovation with The 18th Annual Small Works Show on display at the gallery. This national juried show, a collection of 87 works submitted by nearly 500 artists, is our annual way to acknowledge that size is irrelevant to awesomeness. Artwork qualified for selection as long as it measured no more than 12” in all dimensions, including framing and any digital media hardware required for display. Johnny Thornton, the 2022 juror, considered over 1,400 submissions ranging from traditional painting and sculpture, to photography and digital works of art.
The Small Works Show is a favorite annual event for gallery followers and art collectors alike. We are pleased to announce several awards that will be given to artists participating in the show. This year, the 440 Gallery Award, selected by the artist-members of the gallery, will be renamed the Jim Manwell Memorial Award, in memory of our dear friend and supporter Jim Manwell. The People’s Choice Award, voted on through social media, and the Juror’s Choice Award, selected by Johnny Thornton, will also be awarded.
