RL•S is located at 151 East Bay Street in downtown Charleston. The exhibit runs from April 8 through to April 30.
From the soft and misty horizon lines that Mickey William’s creates to the stark color play that Allan Hall infuses into his still lives, the “Small Works 2005” show is an assembly of unique artists.
Each artist is submitting 3 to 6 pieces that represent their distinguished styles. All of them are “little gems,” as the gallery owner Robert Lange refers to them. For the show, the gallery will be displaying smaller works no larger than 16” x 20” and priced from $200 to $2000, providing collectors with a chance to buy smaller pieces by some of their favorite artists.
All of the artists chosen for the show are practicing fine art painters and photographers, most with art education backgrounds. The variety of styles, colors, mediums, and subject matter is brought together with a size criterion; making each work it’s own mini masterpiece.
Smaller pieces painted by well-known artists hold a certain appeal that larger works by those same artists may not; they are desirable because of their intimacy and collectable nature.
“You can actually watch collectors eyes light with mischief as they pick the perfect piece,” said Robert Lange. “People always have a little wall in their house someplace that needs a touch of color and a story to go with it.”
The night of the opening a 3.5” x 2.6” collaborative soft cover book will be available cataloging the show.
