100 Square Inches of Art

100 Square Inches of Art pushes the creative powers of local and national artists to expressive their artistic vision inside of 100 square inches or less... no more. Art can be made into any form or shape as long as the total square inches used is equal to or less than 100 square inches (3D Artists get an extra 10 inches of depth for a total of 1000 cubic inches!). See color, see shape, see forms or figures, portraits or abstracts. All in a small form factor that is perfect for a holiday gift or a special addition to your personal art collection.

Thinking small encourages creative thinking and a sense of detail. How can working on a small scale help bring out your vision? How can a small art piece take on a large presence? How much art can an artist pack into a small space? Will the piece be 1" wide and 100" long, 10" x 10" or something else?

We are looking for all types of works--painting, sculpture, photography and more--works that show off your ability and creativity to work is a small space. Only 100 square inches will be allowed or less. However, the dimensions are up to you and multiple pieces can be submitted as a single diptych. Give viewers and collectors a chance to purchase a small piece of your artwork... The main criteria for selection is creativity and fresh approaches in the artwork and use of the small scale.
