‘Small Wonders’ at reasonable prices
November 14, 2007
ASPEN ” In the Aspen Chapel Gallery’s Small Wonders exhibit, to be unveiled Wednesday, the works are small ” not more than 12-by-12 inches ” and the price tags are low ” nothing topping $300.
But the show, aimed at shoppers looking for holiday gifts, has proved to be a big attraction. Last year’s inaugural exhibit was popular enough that the buy-it-and-take-it policy left the gallery walls bare.
This year, the artists ” more than two dozen, representing numerous media and styles ” were instructed to provide eight items apiece, so that works could be replaced as they were purchased.
The exhibit features works by: Nancy Barbour, Joel Belmont, Lili Belmont, Shelley Bogaert, Marith Berens, Amy Bowman, Steven Colby, Erin Dinsmoor, Elizabeth Farson, Royle Freund, Jennifer Ghormley, Jaquetta Green, Jan Grenda, Kathy Honea, Nicole Levesque, Donna Linnecke, Carol Loewenstern, Connie Madsen, Jason Schneider, Sara Ransford, Marty Schlein, Barry Sheehan, Wyatt Shudlick, Betty Weiss, Mary Whalen and Sandra Johnson.
The exhibit, curated by Johnson, who makes abstract paintings, opens with a reception on Wednesday from 5 to 7 p.m. and runs through Jan. 6. The chapel is located off the roundabout, on Castle Creek Road.
