BIG Small Works Art Show Opening Reception

BIG Small Works Art Show
Elephant Room Gallery
2727 S. Mary St.
Chicago, IL

Chicago, Il - Elephant Room Gallery is proud to present their 1st BIG Small Works Art Exhibition featuring over 30 emerging artists from all over the nation. The gallery has focused on mainly Chicago-based artists since their inception in 2009 but is excited to begin working with artists from all over in order to create a broader dialogue in the Chicago art scene.

The exhibition features artwork that is 30x30 and smaller and includes painting, photography, mixed media and sculpture. After putting out a national call for artists, the gallery had a tough job of choosing works out of many strong submissions. “The response to the call got me very excited as they were so many great submissions. Even for those who did not get selected, we have made great new contacts for future group shows. We’d love to make this an annual exhibition and our Bridgeport gallery is the perfect venue for it.” - Kimberly Atwood, Director of Elephant Room Gallery.

The BIG Small Works Show brings together some Elephant Room Gallery alumni artists as well as new artists. The resulting exhibition will be an exciting mix and will allow for some great networking opportunities and community building for the duration of the exhibit. 

e exhibition opens on Friday, November 11th with a reception from 6:00pm to 9:00pm and runs through the holidays. Elephant Room Gallery’s Bridgeport location is at 2727 S Mary St. in Chicago. All works will be available for purchase and guests may take their artwork home at the time of purchase in order to allow for successful holiday gift giving.
