Thursday, December 11, 6 – 8 pm; Gallery Talk with Kayleigh Bryant-Greenwell, 7 pm
In a new Target Gallery exhibition, artists were challenged to express themselves in a work of art that is no larger than five inches in any direction. 5×5(x5) is an all-media exhibition featuring little works that make a big impact.
“As a grouping, the artwork on view in this exhibition is a study in modernity across many voices,” said Kayleigh Bryant-Greenwell, guest juror for 5×5(x5). “These small works present an array of contexts. Some artists focused heavily on technique and other delved into contemporary issues, touching upon issues of race and sexuality. Pop culture, figurative drawings, landscapes, still-lifes, and abstraction collide.”
As artists were restricted only by size, not by medium, subject, or content, the featured work reflects a diverse cross-section of today’s zeitgeist, or spirit of our time.

”This exhibition is a biannual tradition for the Target Gallery,” said Kaitlyn Ward, Target Gallery director. “Artists are free to express themselves in any medium on any topic and it has been so intriguing to see the show evolve and take new shape each time. This year is no exception.”
All of the artwork on exhibition is original and available for purchase.
The Target Gallery is open daily from 10 – 6 pm and until 9 pm on Thursdays.
