Palm Ave Sarasota FL PRIORITY:0 DESCRIPTION:Allyn Gallup Contemporary Art presents"A Few Great, Big Pictures”May 16-July 28This exhibit features large-scale works by Luisa Basnuevo, Dolores Coe, Leslie Lerner, Craig Rubadoux and Mike Solomon. Why large-scale?“Sometimes bigger is better,” says gallery director Allyn Gallup.“A large-scale artwork can anchor a living space and make a bold statement about who you are and what matters to you."He adds that, "Too often, people make the mistake of thinking small. They underestimate the size of the paintings that will work in their residences--or shy away from statements they feel are too strong.The truth is, strong art is a reflection of your strength. Miniatures can be powerful. But there's no denying the fact that artists pour their hearts into large-scale works.They stretch their creative muscles and show the world, 'Here's what I can do.' When they succeed, the result is art you'll love for a lifetime.” \n  END:VEVENT END:VCALENDAR
