Small works show at Gallery 86

The Haywood County Arts Council’s “It’s a Small, Small Work” will be held Nov. 19-Dec. 27 at Gallery 86 in Waynesville. 

The show provides a unique opportunity for budding artists to exhibit their work, as well as the opportunity for more seasoned artists to test their boundaries. All pieces ready to be sold are exactly 12” or smaller, which includes ceramics, paintings, sculpture, jewelry and photography. Most prices will be between $50-$125, with nothing more than $300. An artist reception will be held from 6-9 p.m. Dec. 5, with a “Night Before Christmas” evening from 6-9 p.m. Dec. 13.

This project is supported by the North Carolina Arts Council, a division of the Department of Cultural Resources. or This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or 828.452.0593.
