Tiny Art Show Dates: June 1 - 29, 2018

There is something truly extraordinary about losing oneself in the detail and fine delicacy of a tiny work of art. Its smallness doesn’t diminish its capacity for unbounded beauty, emotional depth, and a compelling sense of wonder. Tiny art can speak volumes! From keyhole worlds to miniature marvels, the possibilities are endless.

The Tiny Art Show is juried by accomplished printmaker and engraver, Johanna Mueller of FeverishART, based in Fort Collins, CO. Accepted artists are eligible to win over $800 in juried prizes, awarded at the opening reception (First Friday, June 1). Applications are due no later than Monday, April 16, by 5:00pm (MST).


Please read the following instructions, requirements, and important dates before completing this application to ensure that your work fits the requirements for the Tiny Art Show. Send any questions to our Gallery Manager at brian@carbondalearts.com.
