SIZE matters - GALLERY ONE AND LEVEL ONE GALLERY
"Sometimes you have to look really hard to see the beauty in small things" - This exhibition embraces the mystique of small is best and that the best things come n small packages. This is truly an international exhibition with pieces on display from both Pakistan and Japan as well as attracting artists from across the region and nationally. All pieces exhibited are no larger than 20cm in either height or length. If you believe big is best, then this is the exhibition you most definitely should visit and see some of the best small pieces of work art in exhibition.
