Small but Unexpected

Hi all,
One of our members, Nora Hiriart, has put together a particularly interesting show that's opening this Friday (Nov. 14th) entitled "Small but Unexpected". I personally think this show is uncommonly beautiful and encourage you all to share in it.

Nora has a special perspective that comes from being a transplant from Mexico in our American world. She's never lost that perspective of someone who simultaneously looking from the outside in and the inside out. It is this trait that I believe pushes her to explore the works produced by many cultures and her drive to create a space in which cultures create an understanding. In her show, "Small but Unexpected" the pieces are typically of small scale or have aspects to them that are small, but impact the piece and the viewer in a big way. There is a trading of nuances achieved when viewing the show as a whole: you can see the big picture of pieces or movements within pieces so small.

The works featured are from a myriad of artist; local as well as special participants from Mexico and Japan. The pieces from Japan are on loan from the Keisho Art Association in Japan. While I've not entirely grasped what Keisho is exactly about, I feel so much when I look at the pieces they've shared with us, as I do the works from the other artists in this show.

Hope to see you there!
