The "Small Works" show features work that is limited in size to no more than 12 inches by 12 inches. It's fairly well known that smaller works sell more frequently than larger ones. The reasons are simple. Smaller pieces cost less, are easier to collect and display. And in today's times the idea of a painting, print or photograph that fits easily on your wall for the right price makes good sense.
Jonathan Deutsch, from Kinnelon, NJ is one of many artists who will be displaying a variety of works. Jonathan has two encaustic paintings in the "Small Works" show. Not everyone has heard of encaustics, but most people have seen them and just didn't know what medium was used to create the painting. Encaustics utilize oil pigments, wax and damar resin. It is a technique that has been used for thousands of years and there are examples of these paintings which have survived from the times of ancient Europe and Egypt in museums as well as private collections.
The two works by Jonathan are of a similar theme and can be seen not only at the show, but previewed online at www.jonathan-
The trip to the opening reception next Saturday is worth the ride into the country, not just for the fresh air, but also for the fresh perspective of new works of art.
