The virtue of showing so-called "tiny" art (no bigger than 6" by 6" by 6") is that you can pack a lot of work into a gallery space. More than 100 different Indy artists, working in a wide range of styles and mediums, are featured in TINY, from Emily Budd's bronze sculptures of seemingly alien creatures, to Rachel Bliel's stoneware wall-hanging butterflies.

Site-specific offerings take advantage of the sleek gallery space, including Rachel Baxter's "Thallophytes," which look like fungi as they cling to a wood support beam but are actually relief prints with watercolor. You might wonder how you might incorporate such fungi into your own living room.

This isn't a question to ask with Stacey Holloway's "Bridge to Comfort," a model bridge in the shape of an arch that can fit snugly on two people's noses when they're facing each other at four inches apart. A video featuring Holloway and various partners depicts the piece in action.
