Art Exhibit Showcases Mini-Masterpieces

Small-scale artwork from artists across the nation will be on display this month in Harper College's 36th annual Small Works National Juried Exhibition, a celebration of mini-masterpieces measuring no more than 22 inches across. More than 300 artists submitted a collective 900 pieces for consideration for this year's show, which runs through Thursday, April 18 in the College's Art Exhibition Space, Room 200, Building C on the main campus in Palatine.

Staci Boris, who selected the works for this year's exhibit, praised Small Works as a way for students and the community to discover new art and artists. "This exposure to art made outside the halls of the College is an important component of art education," says Boris, chief curator at the Elmhurst Art Museum and former executive director of Art Chicago.

The exhibit is sponsored by the Harper College Educational Foundation. Viewing times are 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Thursday through April 18. It is free and open to the public. For more details on Harper's Art Department and exhibits, visit
