The 50th anniversary edition of Small Favors presents almost 500 small artworks displayed in 4-inch cubes. In the exhibition you will find big ideas, individuality, and material awareness. Some artists were invited, while others were selected from an applicant pool of over 1,000. To celebrate that this truly is an exhibition for everyone, the call was extended to artists using other media to create their art, including wood, metal, glass, fiber, paper, and paint. The majority of the works are examples of small ceramic artworks that range from tiny mugs to intricate sculptures. 

Artists represented in Small Favors range from the most established ceramic artists in the field, to young artists and students new to the material. Small Favors engages artists’ creativity in new and exciting ways with the challenge of making art on a very small scale. Some create works in their usual style, but at a reduced scale. Others use it as an opportunity to experiment and break away from what they create in their daily studio practice. 

This range of artists allows us to present works in a broad price range, from $35 to $4,500. We hope that this empowers people to become collectors, as well as helping established collectors continue to support artists.
