Casey Wiebust exhibits at the World's Smallest Art Gallery

Casey Wiebust is Exhibiting in The World's Smallest Art Gallery from October 15, 2011 through December 1, 2011.

Casey's Artist Statement: My goal as an artist is making the surreal and magical world I often imagine believable. My imagination takes me to a world of supernatural beings and settings in which I wonder, "Is there really a 'middle earth’ with witches, goblins, wizards and fairies?” My artwork has revolved around this theme for the past few years. My interest in the fantastical world derives from my childhood; I grew u
p in Jamestown Rhode Island, my house surrounded by woods, brooks, gardens and of course, witches, fairies and gnomes!

The World’s Smallest Art Gallery is: • A kiosk on the So
uth County Bike Path (http://southcountybikepath.org/). It is located in Peace Dale where the bike path crosses Route 108. The kiosk is a beautifully designed and built structure that has two display cases. Each measures 42” X 41” x 2”. The cases are weatherproof and have sturdy locks. • A joint project of Hera Gallery (http://heragallery.org/) and Peace Dale Neighborhood Revitalization, Inc. (http://www.peacedale.net/). • A place to show your artwork. Hera Gallery will be managing the kiosk as a place for artists to display their work. You may have a six-week, one-person show in the kiosk on a first come, first serve basis. Work is not juried, but must be “family friendly.” Artists are asked to choose work that does not depict nudity, sexuality or violence. Neither Hera Gallery nor PDNRI will insure the work. Artists display work at their own risk. • A way of having your work seen by a lot of people. The bike path has very heavy traffic, especially during the Spring, Summer and early Fall. Many bikers, runners and walkers pass by every hour. There will not be sales from the Kiosk, but your display can include your contact information. Hera Gallery will publicize The World’s Smallest Gallery on its website, blog, and Constant Contact mailings. A Facebook page will be developed. • A way to beautify the community. The stretch of the bike path where the kiosk is located contains other artwork including murals, sculpture, mosaics, and landscape architecture. The World’s Smallest Art Gallery will add to the beautification of this area. John Kotula is the coordinator of this project for Hera Gallery. If you are interested in showing your artwork on the bike path contact John at johnkotulapchn@yahoo.com to get more details and to schedule a show.
