Introducing SmallWorks™

Welcome to our first SmallWorks™ Fine Art Edition Show, 40 “miniature” works from The Greenwich Workshop Family of Artists. Miniature art is an important part of any collection and SmallWorks is the way to start yours. Such works are often a collector’s first purchase because they are less expensive. A single small jewel of art can be that final, elegant touch in fine décor. On the other hand, a wall filled with framed miniatures makes for an impressive display of a collector’s unique style and range of interests.

The Greenwich Workshop’s SmallWorks are artworks with an image area of 144 square inches
or less (For example, it could be 12” x 12” or 3”x 44”.) Larger than the traditional miniature
format (6” x 9”), the SmallWorks design gives the artist slightly more space and dimensions to
play with, while still offering the collector or first time buyer a point of easy and unique access to the finest art from the finest artists. SmallWorks is about opening the door to the joy of collecting. It is part of a larger program to not only bring you the finest art from Greenwich Workshop artists, but to seek out new artists from around the world. In Fall 2007, we will present the SmallWorks North America™ Exhibition and Sale of original art juried from an open call for entries that has already begun. The Top 40 selections from that exhibition will be invited to appear in our Spring 2008 SmallWorks Fine Art Edition Catalogue. And you will be helping us to select them.

Wa Girl

by Mian Situ
The Yunnan Province of southwest China is a mountainous and remote region that is home to 26 separate tribes including the Wa. The isolation of the province has protected the Wa from the incursion of modern influences that have overcome so much of China. Many of the tribal traditions and ways have survived to this day.

Most of artist Mian Situ's depictions of rural life in China focus on this region, and while it may be an unfamiliar world with unfamiliar customs, the emotions and dreams of the people in his paintings are universal.

The Terrible Twos

by Bonnie Marris

“I did all the right things! I picked a fabulous stallion with a great disposition to be her sire and I read all the books. In May, we delivered a beautiful little filly. I worked with her every day, teaching her leading, bathing, grooming, tying and not to kick or nip. She was the perfect foal…. Then, one morning, I woke up to the “terrible twos.” Suddenly she argued! She threw tantrums! She bucked, she ran, she whinnied for me to leave, then not to leave. She threw her brushes, dumped her grain, splashed water on me, stomped her feet, and shook her head. Was it my fault? Not enough teaching? Too much?

“She’s three now. Whew…she’s perfect again!”

Birdcage

by Emily McPhie

Emily McPhie’s portraits of women and children offer a window into her artistic education. The solemn, sweet little girl in Birdcage, for example, would look perfectly at home with a collection of early American paintings. “Birds often represent the soul or spirit in my paintings,” says the artist. The birdcage itself is empty, but if we look closely we can find the bird printed on the little girl’s dress—has her soul broken free just as the bird? Birdcage invites us to look deeper into our own hearts and imaginations to find the answer.

Simba

by John Weiss

The name Simba is the Swahili word for “lion,” but this sweet puppy is anything but fierce. With his silky golden fur, floppy ears and big brown eyes, Simba will make an irresistible addition to any dog-lover’s home. “My goal is to capture the natural beauty of the puppy,” says Weiss, “not to make something cute—because it’s cute enough already. You don’t have to add to something that beautiful.”
