Greg Barnes at The World's Smallest Art Gallery

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 johnkotulapchn@yahoo.com to get
 more details and to schedule a show.
