Small works arts show to debut at the Collaborative


The Collaborative will hold the opening reception for their first ever community art exhibition on Thursday, Dec. 8 from 5-8 p.m. at their Collaborative Studio, 4 Market St, in Warren.

Over the past several weeks, 37 local artists submitted over 100 pieces of artwork, 8 inches or smaller, to be displayed in the group show that will run through Jan. 15, 2023.

“Everyone who submitted work that fit the guidelines was accepted into the show,” said Sandy MacDonald, the Collaborative’s Gallery Coordinator. “All of the work we received is wonderful, which we totally expected since there’s so many talented folks in our community.”

MacDonald had the idea for this exhibit while thinking of more ways to reach out to artists who might not have the opportunities to get their work into other galleries. “We have always prided ourselves in the fact that anyone can show their work in our galleries,” said MacDonald. “We try to do what we can to support new and budding artists, which is why we don’t jury shows. And with this show, 100% of any sales goes back to the artist.”

There will be light snacks at the opening reception, provided by arc{hive} book + snackery, along with a cash bar.
