Small in Scale, Huge in Impact Brooklyn, NY - They say great things come in small packages. As 440 Gallery presents its Ninth Annual Small Works Show this December, this adage may just prove true. The 80 pieces of artwork in the gallery, each piece no larger than 12", represents a strong Brooklyn artistic presence, but also showcases artists from all over the country. The show includes a variety of media-- painting, photography, sculpture-- chosen by this year's juror, Jessica Porter, art consultant and director of Porter Contemporary, a gallery in the Chelsea arts district of New York City. (See below for more on our juror.) This much anticipated exhibition regularly opens with an overflow crowd spilling onto Sixth Avenue. There are three awards given each year: the Curators Award, the 440 Award, and the popular People's Choice Award which is determined by the number of "likes" received by the works in the show posted on 440 Gallery's Facebook page. Installed through the holiday season, the show attracts tourists, visitors in the neighborhood, as well as the many stalwart supporters of the local art scene. The show runs from December 12 through January 12, with an opening reception on Thursday, December 12, 6:00 - 9:00 pm. The eighty artists accepted into this year's show are: Torey Akers, Diane Allison, Kiley Ames, Audrey Anastasi, Efrat Baler, Beatrice Bardin, Nicole Brauch, Zel Brook, Melitte Buchman, Lloyd Campbell, Arthur Celedonia, Jana Charl, Erin Cross, Corinna D'Schoto, Steve Davis, Andrea DeFelice, Christine Dengel, Phil DeSantis, Anthony DiMaggio, Monica Emmons, Brian Everett Miller, Michelle Farkouh, Chloë Feldman Emison, Benjamin Ferguson, Donna Festa, Jane Foley Ferraro, Gail Ghezzi, Peter Goldwater, Johanna Goodman, Carlo Grassini, Leslie Green Guilbault, K.
