ART OPENING “Mighty Small” at Front Gallery

May 18 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm


MAY 18 – JUNE 15, 2024: “Mighty Small” brings together nine paintings by nine U.S. artists at Front Gallery: Yura Adams, Michael Berryhill, Tess Bilhartz, Meghan Brady, Dana Frankfort, Dennis Hollingsworth, Ezra Johnson, Bradley Kerl, and Gwen Strahle. The aim of this exhibition is to demonstrate how much can be seen, conjured, and achieved within a modest frame. By contemporary painting standards the paintings in this show are small, but the effect of each one is expansive and reaching—even mighty.

Encountering a small painting can be an intimate experience, as when you encounter it you are placed in the same proximity that the artist was in when they made it.  Our constant processing of images on screens is too often seen as analogous to actually being with the thing the artist has made. To be with the actual painting is to encounter surface and depth, images and material, the ordinary and the mysterious, and potentially so much more. Each painting in the show provides this opportunity. Each is a record of idiosyncratic intentions and impulses, and each is a small but mighty moment.
