One Night Only: Pint Size Paintings at The Sacred Gallery!


All Photos By Geoffrey Dicker

If you weren’t at downtown New York’s Sacred Gallery (located at 424 Broadway at Canal Street, 2nd Floor) on Friday July 9th, then you missed out on the happening art party of the summer, Pint Size Paintings! Curated by Durb Morrison (who also contributed works to the event), Pint Size Paintings collects over 400 original works of art by 350 artists, all painted on canvases measuring only 2 by 3 inches in size (each artist was given two canvases)! Geoffrey (read his review and see more pictures here) and I could not believe the fine detailing and originality of these paintings, which ranged in subject matter from conventional portraiture and well-known celebrities to the surreal, the visceral, the horrific and the fantastic.

Besides the sensorially overwhelming effect of the dozens and dozens of captivating miniature canvases (we circled the room a half dozen times at least, noticing new details of these tiny masterpieces on each successive pass) the show was also a great party with tons of cool people to chat up and free-flowing, ice-cold PBRs – so important with this ridiculous heat wave we’ve been having! We had a fantastic time and got completely wasted for free – Art!

Don’t get too bummed though if you missed the exhibit here in NYC, because you can purchase a copy of Pint Size Paintings Volume #1: Miniature Paintings By Big Artists, featuring a large selection of the Pint Sized images, for just $29.99 from the Hell City store at This Link. Thanks to Durb Morrison and gallery manager Kevin Wilson for a truly memorable evening!
