About the Exhibition:

Small Works 2020 is our eighth edition of this rapidly growing show and will be held at the Shirt Factory Gallery, established in February 2012 to primarily serve as a welcome center and showcase for works created by our resident artists; the Shirt Factory Gallery now offers three juried shows a year, bringing in artwork and introducing new artists from across the country.

The gallery is located in a historic manufacturing building, brought to new life, which now houses more than 60 artist studios, shops, galleries and services. Its clean, modern design features an open floor format with a small annex.
