"Recently, we held an open call to Florida artists specifically for this exhibition. Out of the 45 submissions we received, thirteen talented artists were selected to participate. It was gratifying to garner such an overwhelming response to our call. Historically this exhibition is a proven winner, and adding this new layer of talent just strengthens it. I look forward to introducing these accomplished artists alongside our current roster of artists,” stated Gallery Director, Meghan Martin.

Small Things Considered provides art collectors and holiday shoppers with an opportunity to view and purchase original works of art. A few examples of original artwork included in this exhibition are: the whimsical constructions of storefronts by Vero Beach artist, Gustaf Miller, the striking black and white patterned vessels, teapots and plates by Orlando artist Susan Bach, the environmental woodblock prints exploring Sebring artist Mollie Doctrow’s fascination with indigenous plants, subtly inscribed functional vessels by New Smyrna Beach artist Tom Brewer, and the ethereal mixed media oil paintings by Ormond Beach artist, BJ Lantz.
