Greg Barnes in The World's Smallest Art Gallery Greg Barnes' drawings will be on display in The World's Smallest Art Gallery* until September 15, 2014. Greg is a twenty year old artist who lives in Newport, Rhode Island and attends the New Hampshire Institute of Arts. He is majoring in graphic design, but is enthusiastic about many different approaches to art making. In addition to these excellent drawings he also does digital work and videos. Greg's work often reflects political events and the way they impact the community and each of us personally. He uses social media and the internet as part of his inspiration as an artist. He says he wants to be part of the creative flow of the world. *The World’s Smallest Art Gallery is: • A kiosk on the South 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 1”. 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 firstname.lastname@example.org to get more details and to schedule a show.
