Through Friday, October 5, 2012

The cliché is true: good things come in small packages. Or small canvasses, as in the case of 2nd Thursday’s inaugural 3×3 Show at Evol Society. Combining the limits of artistic restraint through potentially limitless charitable support, the local collective of 2nd Thursday’s artists brought their A-game to benefit Roma Provisions, a charity that provides a pair of free boots for every pair of boots sold to street children and orphans in cold and wet climates.

I arrived at the reception fairly early, so several of the artworks were not yet available for view and many of the artists had not yet arrived.  However, I did get to see the witty Balls to the Wall, a series of baseballs secured to the gallery wall on 3×3 wooden planks.

I also got to see artist Patricia Rodriguez’s contribution, a triptych scene of two doodle bugs done in acrylic on canvas, reflecting her signature colorful, funky style.

Regarding the specific three by three inch parameter limits, Patricia said, “It was very challenging to work so small; it made me really feel like every brush stroke would be scrutinized since people would be looking so closely, but it was a fun show and I enjoyed seeing everyone’s approach to the format.”
