The Big Little Show Returns to the Gallery @ LPCA
Lake Placid, NY: The Lake Placid Center for the Arts (LPCA) invites the community to the opening reception for The Big Little Show on Thursday, November 7th from 5:00 to 7:00pm in the Gallery @ LPCA, 17 Algonquin Drive, Lake Placid. This holiday season favoritewill be on display from November 7th through December 21st. Gallery hours are Wednesday through Saturday from 1 PM to 5 PM. Admission is free.
The show features the work of over 40 different artists, making it the biggest show of small-scale works in the region. Each artist was invited to submit works sized 144 square inches or less. Past years have shown an exciting range in approaches, demonstrating how many different ways there are to explore a small space through artistic expressions in all kinds of media.
LPCA began hosting The Big Little Show in 2011 and has sold over 400 individual pieces of art through this special holiday exhibit over the years. One of the best things about the show, says LPCA Executive Director James Lemons, is "not only does Big Little offer a fun alternative to online shopping or driving to Plattsburgh during the holiday rush, the artist commissions are a significant investment in our local creative economy."
