"Small Treasures IV"

 

November 16 - December 31, 2006

 

Deborah Davis Fine Art, Inc., located at 510 Warren Street, Hudson, New York will hold its final exhibit for 2006 with its annual large group show titled “Small Treasures IV.” The show will open on Thursday, November 16 and will run through the end of the year.

Although not restricted to miniatures, all the work in “Small Treasures IV” will be limited in size and price. For buyers and collectors, the attraction to these works of art lies not only in the beauty of detail and refinement, but in the uniqueness, preciousness and particularly in today’s society - the rareness and practicality of something small. For this last show of the year, the exhibition space in the gallery, which ordinarily features the work of either a single artist or two or three artists whose works are united by a specific motif or concept, will resemble the Parisian salons of the 1930's where the walls were chock full of art, almost floor to ceiling, with little space between each work. “Small Treasures IV” will offer the viewer a wide range of styles, from abstract to expressionist to representational; a variety of media which will include oils, pastels, collages and potato prints; and works on paper, canvas, wood and board as well as some small pieces of sculpture and ceramics.

“Small Treasures IV” will feature many of the artists whose work has been shown at the gallery in the past as well as some new artists. Included among the artists who will be exhibiting are local and regional artists Loel Barr, Naomi Blum, Rebecca Clark, Connie Fiedler, Sara Gilbert, Joseph Guida, Helen R. Haddad, Pat Hogan, John Jackson, Peter Liman, Stanley Maltzman, Willie Marlowe, Marie-Louise McHugh, Roberta Meyerson, H.M. Saffer, and Carol Slutzky-Tenerowicz; from northern New York State, Sylvia A. Barker and from Soho, Lynne Mayocole.

The beauty of these “small treasures” is that you don’t need a large space in which to display them. You can put the art on the walls, an easel or on a table or desk. The pieces in this show also will offer the young or first-time art buyer an affordable way to start a collection. And, with everything in the show priced at $600 or less, many of the “small treasures” could make wonderful holiday gifts.

The gallery will hold a reception for the artists on Saturday, November 18th from 6-8p.m. to which the public is invited. Deborah Davis Fine Art is open from 11a.m. to 5p.m. Thursday to Monday and by appointment. For more information call (518) 822-1890.
