Sales at art galleries are down. Dealers are searching for ways to keep the bottom from falling out. Several have devised an interesting solution for now: offering smaller works at smaller prices.
A couple of months ago I was invited to show my work in such an exhibition at Wall Space gallery in Seattle. Now, on the other side of the country, 5” x 5” prints of mine are included in a show in Portland, Maine.
The images selected for the show at the Susan Maasch Gallery in Portland are from the series entitled "The Space Between” which is about identical twins. I was surprised how much I loved the intimacy and beauty of the small prints once I made them. Perhaps a trend away from the mega prints of the last couple of decades will begin – all because of the economy.

Susan said she is showing the pieces in a glass case, which can only increase the sense of preciousness. They may even seem like little treasures, which could result in a collector feeling as if he/she has uncovered a great find. We’ll see!
