October 3, 2017 – January 5, 2018

Women Painters of Washington (WPW) present a brand new show where 25 distinguished women artists show the power and beauty of small.  It turns out that size doesn’t necessarily mean better in the art world.  Certainly, larger works – – of European battle scenes and abstract panels by Clifford Still and Jackson Pollack – – draw crowds in major art museums, but historically, smaller works hold their ground in the pantheons of art history around the world.

Consider the 1926 work Three Sounds by abstract artist, Wassily Kandinsky, measuring 24″ x 24″;  The Persistence of Memory (1931) by Salvador Dali at 9″ x 13″; Johannes Vermeer’s famous undated painting, Girl with a Pearl Earring, 18″ x 15″; and Andy Warhol 1962 painting of Campbell’s Soup Cans measuring a mere 20″ x 16″.

Our member artists exhibit their own small and powerful works during our autumn/holiday show.  These works represent wondrous treasures in small packages!  Smaller works have the power of touching our hearts and summon us to keep them close as tokens of deeper meaning – – souvenirs of memorable relationships and experiences.  Join us for this first-ever exhibit of “small” works, none larger than 24″ and some as small as 6″ by 6″.  You just may find an irresistible keepsake, a treasure for yourself or someone special.
