"A unique space for unique art"

 

The House of Smalls was established by me, Amy, in November 2020 in the midst of the Covid19 pandemic. 

​​

​​Whilst the early virtual galleries promoted by well-known art establishments, and subsequently smaller arts organisations, which sprang up during the worldwide lockdowns and restrictions were a great concept and provided access to art in the absence of open venues, I became frustrated by the repetitive and formulaic construct and high costs to submit/show work and felt compelled to somehow create an alternative; a physical, predominantly women-centric, interactive and affordable not-for-profit art space with a feminist ethos to join the already established independent digital exhibitions and those latterly forced online by the extraordinary ongoing circumstances. 

​​

And so I bought a house.​ A very small house.
 

Since its inception, The House of Smalls has grown into a street of three galleries, Little Amy's studio, a suitcase and a tin bathroom. The Houses are all second/third/fourth hand and thrifted from charity, resale and auction outlets. 

The House has to date held six group shows, with the seventh due to open on 29 January 2022, exhibiting the original physical small artwork of 145 artists from 18 countries on and within its diminutive walls, all of which has been sent to the tiny Wiltshire (UK) village where the Houses are currently based. 

The words and language used in profiles are the artists' own - it's important to me that work is portrayed as intended by the artist and that what wants to be said about their work and practice, however much or little, is said. 

Much of the artwork exhibited is for sale and if you're interested in purchasing/discussing any of the available pieces please contact me. No commission is taken by The House of Smalls.

 

The House of Smalls is entirely self-funded, the only cost to artists being that of postage to and from the House. If you'd like to donate the cost of a coffee please do, it all helps towards upkeep of the houses, website and marketing fees, social media promotions and printing costs etc.

Thank you so much xx
