THIS VOLATILE STATE

1 - 31 August 2021

This Volatile State will be a group show of 30 artists in The House of Smalls (House II). This is a call for miniature and small art, the theme of which is very much open to interpretation. 

'State'

  • the condition of a person or thing, as with respect to circumstances or attributes

  • the condition of matter with respect to structure, form, constitution, phase

  • the place where someone or something comes from

 

The state of self; the state of being; the state of living.

 

This call is for all mediums of original small artworks, to include 3D, photography and digital art, and a very limited number of prints of larger work.

2D work should be within the maximum measurements of 5 x 5 x 0.5 inches/12 x 12 x 1 cm (to INCLUDE any mount/frame).

3D work should have a maximum footprint of 2.5 x 2.5 x 6(H) inches/6 x 6 x 15(H) cm - there is limited room for maneouvre on this so please specify the exact size when submitting your work.

This Volatile State will run for a month throughout August 2021. 

Although due to current lockdown restrictions etc this show will be online only, it is a physical exhibition and works selected will need to be posted to The House of Smalls, a UK based project.
There will be a nominal cost of £5 per selected artist to cover return post and materials.

THE TIME OF HER LIFE

1 - 31 May 2021

'The Time of Her Life' brings together 39 women who use visual art and words to express their emotions, thoughts and feelings as they navigate and negotiate their way through the murky waters of perimenopause and menopause.

We are bombarded with positive quotes and uplifting images to remind us that this is a time of celebration and liberation . . . but is it? What were you told? What were you not told? Who were you and who have you become? Indeed, is this inevitable transition worthy of mention at all?

It is an actual exhibition, in that the artists’ works hang on and stand within the diminutive walls of the gallery.

THE PORTRAIT WITHIN

20 February - 21 March 2021

'The Portrait Within' is The House of Smalls' second show, and first in House II, featuring 35 UK and international artists. We all have an outward self/selves, the one(s) that we present to the many worlds we inhabit: external manifestations of life experiences, influences that have surrounded us to this moment, and as a result of choices that we have made. But how do we really view ourselves? This isn’t a true portrait show nor a question of identity but rather about the hidden self.
