MicroArt – a group exhibition

309
Micro Art for Micro Spaces

The Microdwelling Movement is growing!  People are shrinking their living quarters to decrease their carbon footprint, getting rid of clutter, and living smarter.  In that spirit the Shemer Art Center is hosting MicroDwell and MicroArt in February & March of 2014.

MicroArt is an exhibit of small works, nothing larger that 12″ in any dimension. Thinking big / working small – the 18 Valley artists invited include: Victoria Altepeter, Michael Anderson, John Armstrong, Donna Atwood, Ron Berman, Ron Bimrose, Sandy Blain, Sam Chung, Tom Eckert, Jane Kelsey-Mapel,  Becky Frehse, Sandra Luehrsen, Monica Aissa Martinez, Ann Morton, Cynthia Peterson, Tom Ortega, Helen Norsigian Rowles, Polly Smith, and Clare Verstegen.

The work is varied and wonderful and here is a very small (micro) preview.
