The Big Tiny Show

January 7 - February 3, 2024

Exhibition Runs: January 13 – February 3, 2024

The Kolman & Reeb Gallery is excited to ring in 2024 by showcasing art created over 50 artists from across Minnesota with a juried group exhibition, The Big Tiny Show.

From its inception, the Kolman & Reeb Gallery has focused on ways to support Minnesota artists. This juried group show allowed the prestigious Minneapolis gallery to expand on this mission with a call inviting artists to submit their work to be considered for this show regardless of subject matter, media, and expression. The tremendous response shows Minnesota artists are passionate to share their unique perspectives.

From tried-and-true oil on canvas to pine needles and artificial sinew, gallery patrons can expect an inspiring and diverse exhibition. Adopting its name from the guideline that no one piece of art can be larger than 12 inches, The Big Tiny Show involves a variety of subject matter and media. With the varied assortment, the depth of the show has allowed for an innovative and contemporary curation.

“What excites me about this show is the opportunity it provides the Kolman & Reeb Gallery to suspend its usual aesthetic and instead display artwork
from a wide variety of Minnesota artists regardless of medium, subject, style,” says Anita Sue Kolman, Kolman & Reeb Gallery co-founder and co-partner.

Jodi Reeb, gallery curator and co-partner, comments, “with this show Anita and I were eager to open the call to all media types and expressions. The results were overwhelming, and we received a significant response from Minnesota artists interested in showing their work. Our panel of judges was delighted by the superior quality of the art submitted. We’re eager for our patrons to come and view the diverse collection from across Minnesota. Opening the call to all types of media offered me a unique experience as the show’s curator.”

All are invited to come and view this interesting blend of styles and range of talent from this large assortment of artists.

All art on display during The Big Tiny Show will be available for purchase.
