About the show: ThinkSmall has been an enormously popular event for both artists and patrons since its inception in 2001. The invitational takes place every two years, but the gallery gets emails and calls from interested artists throughout the time in between. Hundreds of artists eagerly take the challenge to create work in any media that fits within our 3x3x3 inch maximum dimension. Many of the participating artists are local to the Richmond area, but work is submitted from throughout the region, across the United States and even Internationally. Each year the gallery posts an online catalog of the artists with images of their work. This year's catalog, along with links to our previous installments of the exhibition, will be available on the ThinkSmall8 web page at: www.artspacegallery.org/ts8
Gallery hours are Tuesday through Sunday from 12-4pm. The gallery is also open by appointment. artspace is partially funded by CultureWorks, the Virginia Commission for the Arts and the National Endowment for the Arts. artspace has secured media sponsorship for ThinkSmall8's Gala Preview from The Community Idea Stations and 88.9 WCVE Richmond Public Radio.
