A Trove of Small Treasures
by Karin Weber Gallery
Location: Karin Weber Gallery
Artist(s): GROUP SHOW
Date: 17 Dec 2014 - 31 Jan 2015

Karin Weber Gallery is delighted to announce its special Christmas and New Year group show, ‘A Trove of Small Treasures,’ a vibrant collection of smaller works by key gallery artists.

Artists have often used smaller sized works to showcase their particular talents and exceptional craftsmanship. From miniature illuminated prayer books in seventeenth century Europe to objects crafted from precious jade, lacquer, wood or porcelain in the Chinese Ming and Qing dynasties, small suggests special. As a wealth of materials, skill and labour is condensed into a limited space, something powerful is created in the process – small really is beautiful.

‘A Trove of Small Treasures’ at Karin Weber Gallery brings together diminutive but perfectly executed works, each and every piece testament to the talents of its creator. Several of the artists have created small pieces specifically for this show, employing media that range from painting to photography, sculpture to installation. The exhibition also illustrates the extent to which skill and craftsmanship transcend geographical boundaries and age. Participating artists come from all over the world, ranging from Hong Kong to Germany, China and the USA, and are at different stages in their respective careers – some just starting out, some highly established and authorities in their chosen field. Collectively, they demonstrate the role for small works in each artist’s portfolio, and the versatility of this size in demonstrating ‘best in class’ talent across a multitude of themes and formats.
