River Oaks Square Art Center's 5th Annual 5x5x5 Show, with Guest Juror Virginia Chavis, opens Friday, November 13, 2020 and will run through February 13, 2021. The #Triple5 has become a national miniature art phenomenon in its own right, this year garnering nearly three hundred entries from across the U.S. After a careful selection process, over 75 works of art will be featured in the Bolton-Davis Gallery at River Oaks along with a virtual component to the exhibition, www.RiverOaksVirtualExhibitions.com.
The premise of the 5x5x5 Show is to create a two- or three-dimensional piece of art no larger than 5-inches square or fitting in a 5-inch cube respectively. These parameters challenge the artist to bring his or her best creative work within a limited space. “This small art spectacle has become a signature feature for the arts center, allowing many patrons to add to their expanding collections from artists across the country,” says Rachael Dauzat, Executive Director. “I am reminded why this annual presentation continues to be one of my personal favorites - one, we have room to include these in our collections and two, miniatures create an intimacy between the viewer and the work. An inevitable study ensues as the viewing proximity forms a connection that only miniature works seem to accomplish through their minute details.”
Sales will be conducted through River Oaks by contacting us by phone at (318) 473-2670 or by emailing the Executive Director at firstname.lastname@example.org.
