Small works: the one size that fits all

No room left on your walls?

Fear not! We’ve got works to accommodate emerging collectors’ budgets and established collectors’ wall space.

Still figuring out how to match your aesthetic with your art collection?

We recommend getting your feet wet with small works; they are a gateway to larger pieces rather than a substitute. These works by Boyd, Farrell, Fine, Quinn, and Romano are the perfect building blocks for a new or developing collection. 

Looking for work that capture your unique style and view?

Smaller pieces are easy to hang and re-hang whenever you want! These pieces can be contextualized and recontextualized based on how you group, separate, orient, and disorient them to create a message that's all your own.

Don't miss out!

One of our most prolific and in-demand artists, Jacqueline Boyd, presents works from her Insouciant series.  Connecting with the comforting warmth of a happy home, these works merge domestic kitchen scenes and the contemporary aesthetic of fine line ink drawings. In this series, Boyd utilizes new technologies and encaustic techniques. These free-flowing line drawings are printed on rice paper that seems to evaporate in the process - the bold ink appears to float in the layers of creamy wax. This methodology allows a depth and softness that invites the viewer to attach their own happy memories to revisit for years to come.

Insouciant #12, 2024. Drawing printed on rice paper, embedded in wax on panel, 10.75 x 7.75 inches.

Farrell captures actual and perceived beauty in a unique and stunning way that creates an abstract landscape within a few inches of these worn and storied vessels. Don't miss out on the opportunity to own work by Scott Farrell and explore these discovered lands found in plain site.

Donna Quinn's mixed media panel piece in maroons and grays titled Found Objects.

The mixed media works of Donna Quinn tell stories of the people of Philadelphia. Texturally inspired by the wear of asphalt and emotionally connected to the growth and change seen in collapsed time, Quinn sees and shares beauty that is often overlooked by the average person. These panels can stand alone or be combined to create a completely unique narrative.

Found Objects, 2024. Mixed Media, 12 x 12 inches

Hot off the heels of her brooding yet whimsical exhibition, Serious Play, Rachel Romano shows off her small-scale drawings that inspired her previously showcased paintings. These intimate and intriguing works contain the symbolic mystery of her signature style in a clean and elegant format. Her drawings are mounted on a thick gold board. Each work has its own unique narrative that comments on subjects that are both culturally and personally relatable.
