12×12 Small Wonders proof that good things come in small packages
NEWTON–If the age old adage that “good things come in small packages” was ever in doubt, you need look no further than the Carriage Factory Art Gallery’s 12×12 Small Wonders show for proof it still holds true.
The show, which features entries from nearly two dozen artists, is also a competition where all attendees are encouraged to vote for their favorite artwork. The People’s Choice winner will receive a $100 prize from the Carriage Factory Art Gallery. All entries are also available for purchase.
The opening reception for the 12×12 Small Wonders Show will be held during the gallery’s November Third Thursday event at 6 p.m. Thursday, Nov.21, 2019 in the Susan Koehn Gallery. The show runs through Dec. 18 with the winner announced on Thursday, Dec. 19, 2019 at the December Third Thursday event. The public is invited to attend both events.
Thank You... to the 43 founders of Carriage Factory Art Gallery. Their foresight in 1983 to rent space in a former carriage factory and later to become owners of the property as a nonprofit arts organization led to a renewal of appreciation for creative arts in the community. The gallery today provides opportunities for all ages to gather, learn, experience, perform, share, and celebrate the arts. We invite you to visit the gallery and enjoy the beauty of the art and the hospitality of this historic space.
Three of the founders of Carriage Factory Art Gallery were together at a special event in the gallery: Martha Knudsen, Dr. Frances Allen, and Naomi Wenger
