    The cliché of great things come in small packages gets proven solidly at the 33rd edition of the annual “Small is Beautiful” exhibition at Flowers Gallery that featured artwork in all kinds of medium with the economical scale of 9” X 7” inches. One running thread to consider is that the works are miniscule gems and visual treats that they still needed to relate next to one another. The eye had to travel seamlessly to appreciate the unique vision and talent of each artist. The range of talent included George Blacklock, Dina Brodsky, Aleah Chapin, Cedric Christie, David Hepher, Patrick Hughes, Tim Lewis, Freya Payne, Carol Robertson, Renny Tait, Ann Walsh, et al and others.  It is quite the treat when you explore and examine the minute details of mini-masterpieces that gives a whole new meaning to being intimate with the art. This holiday cozy up and get intimate with art. You are sure to find one worth cuddling up to.
