Prov Art Club — Little Pictures Sale

(12.23) Running now through Wednesday, December 23. The Providence Art Club is holding its annual Little Pictures Show & Sale — buy some original art for yourself or a friend. First held in 1904, Little Pictures is the oldest and largest exhibition of its kind in the United States. The show features over 600 works of art sized at 16” x 16” or less and priced at no more than $300.

Works on view will include paintings, drawings, photographs, collages, hand-pulled prints, hand made artist books, along with sculpture, ceramics, glass, and jewelry.

Sales are “cash and carry”; meaning purchased works may be taken home immediately. New works then replace works that have been sold. This results in a constantly changing exhibition of local, affordable artwork; perfect for gift-giving this holiday season!

Check out the new Bannister bust while you are there. Masks required, as well as social distancing.

Seen here is the Seril Dodge House c. 1789.

The building was raised one story in 1906 for use by Adams Market and extensive alterations at that time eliminated original chimneys and fireplaces, but many original fixtures remain. The building was bought by the Art Club in 1919.

Hence, the front door floating up in the air. I believe this was the location of the art supply store Oakes on the Hill back in the sixties.

Little Pictures, free and open to the public, noon to 5pm, every day through Wednesday, December 23, PAC, 11 Thomas Street, (directions)
