Call for entry: Small Favors VIII



An Invitational and Juried Exhibition
The Clay Studio Is now accepting applications for Small Favors VIII, an invitational and juried exhibition of diminutive works, each piece exhibited less than 4”Length, 4”Width, and 4”Height. Online applications will be accepted through March 31st, 2013. No paper applications will be accepted.

View works from past Small Favors Exhibitions.

Small Favors challenges and engages artist’s creativity in new and exciting ways with the challenge of making pieces for this exhibition. For some artists, the work they create is similar to what they normally make although at a reduced scale. Others use it as an opportunity to break away from what they create in their daily studio practice. Regardless of this choice, the works exhibited are incredibly varied in material, form, and aesthetics. Though small in scale the artworks created for this exhibition are huge in impact. Each work is exhibited in a Plexiglas wall mounted cube.

Conceived of in 2006, Small Favors grew out The Studio's efforts to offer accessible, high-quality artworks that appeal to art enthusiasts of all ages: for older collectors who are challenged for space it allows them to continue to collect work by artists they love. For young art collectors it provides an accessible entry point.

For the first time, The Clay Studio is putting out a call for entries and accepting applications for this annual exhibition that has, up until this point, been an invitation only show. It is our sincere hope that this new process brings to light new makers and broadens the audience we reach through the display of these unique works of art.
