12th Annual Small Works Exhibition 

 Back in 2005 we launched the Magnitude Seven project with the idea that small works would be easier and more practical for artists to send to Manifest from anywhere in the world. This proved true, and right off it was this exhibit that lead to Manifest earning the tag line ‘a neighborhood gallery for the world.’

 Inevitably MAG 7 is a melange of various works, including an extremely wide range of media, styles, and artist intents.The exhibit always gains unity from the common scale, so even disparate works seem to engage in playful and tolerant conversation across the gallery or side by side. We have found that having a couple galleries full of hand-sized works is somehow a relief steeped in the joy of small things well made, a menagerie of creativity, and a poignant reminder that bigger is not always better.

 We are happy to offer this twelfth annual exhibit of works no larger than seven inches in any dimension. For this year’s project 140 artists from 34 states and 9 countries submitted 414 works for consideration by Manifest’s intensely competitive jury process. Twenty-three works by the following 12 artists from 9 states were selected for presentation in the gallery and the season-documenting Manifest Exhibition Annual.
