selgasArt / smallWORKS / Garrison Art Center


smallWORKS 2020, is a national juried biennial exhibition presenting seventy works selected from over five hundred entries. Works were not to exceed 12” in any direction. As always, the jury process was a challenge due to the high caliber of work received. This year’s esteemed juror was Paulien Lethen, a Dutch artist and gallery owner. Lethen opened Holland Tunnel Art Newburgh/Gallery and Studios in May of 2018 shortly after she became a resident of Newburgh, NY. Recognizing a lively local art community, she sets out to create a new place for exhibitions, performances, concerts, movie screenings and art studios. Our gratitude to Paulien Lethen for her careful selection of works which will create a dynamic and diverse exhibition. Excellence awards for best 2D and 3D work, as well as honorable mentions, will be announced the opening week of the show.
