Newport Art Museum
micro/MACRO is a new group exhibition by the Printmakers Network of Southern New England which focuses on scale; very small prints hung alongside large works. I decided to exhibit a collection of small works that I had recently created for exchange portfolio projects. Prints I do for exchange portfolios are usually boxed away, as part of a larger collection, and rarely go out on exhibit. It was satisfying to see my recent exchange prints formally framed and hung in a major exhibition; also fun to see tiny works competing with larger prints. It's interesting how small works can hold their own against larger pieces. That old adage is true, bigger is not necessarily better.
