The works here are small, as befits the size limitations mentioned in its title, but concentrated. Among the artists set for inclusion this year are the likes of Gregory Amenoff, Nancy Azara, Jake Berthot, Donald Elder, Heather Hutchison, Melissa Meyer, Portia Munson, Jenny Nelson, Joan Snyder and others expected to drop off pieces in the coming week. Each piece sells for $100 and is anonymous until after purchase, lending a treasure-hunt aspect to the entire event. Plus, everyone's there for the opening, making for quite the raucous party.
The resulting exhibition - red dots denoting sales and all - stays up through Sunday, December 21. All proceeds support the Woodstock Byrdcliffe Guild's cultural and community-oriented programs and special events. The Kleinert/James Arts Center is located at 34 Tinker Street, right off the Woodstock Village Green. For further information visit www.woodstockguild.org or call (845) 678-2940.
