PANDEMONIUM – 5th Annual Small Works Show

The Olive Free Library Association is pleased to present its 5th Annual Small Works Show featuring 50 regional Hudson Valley artists displaying 67 works. The exhibition, titled “PANDEMONIUM” will take place in the Library’s Community Gallery, and will run from Saturday, November 19, 2022 through Saturday, January 7, 2023 with an opening reception on Saturday, November 19, 3 – 5 pm.

Nathalie Andrews and Elaine Ralston, curators of “PANDEMONIUM” have, together with other members of the Olive Free Library’s Exhibition Committee, put together a lively and varied exhibition of local and regional artworks, all limited to 12” x 12”, in many different media. The call for art resulted in 149 submissions of which 67 were chosen offering the community a great way to purchase works by local artists (within a 50-mile radius) at affordable prices, just in time for the holidays!

The Olive Library is also very excited about a fundraising effort during the Small Works Show: all Exhibition Committee members will be donating one of their own works to this exhibition. These artworks will be installed together on one wall in the Community Gallery and will be sold at only $100 each with 100% of the proceeds benefiting the Olive Free Library, a perfect holiday gift!
