The Loft Gallery has a more subtle and quiet presence for the exhibition, 5 x 5 x 5. This exhibition seeks to explore the dynamic possibilities of how small scale artwork is still very important in both the ceramics community and the fine art world today. Often times, especially in the ceramics field, bigger is better, and is seen with more dominance and superiority over small scale artwork. It seems that sometimes in the art world, and especially the clay community, unless we are looking at a mug, scale is always something that seems to go more towards the larger end of the spectrum. A great piece of artwork, which speaks to the viewer, can be any size and can even be placed in the corner with very little lighting and still have just as much punch. This idea that the work does not have to be large to convey its meaning is what this exhibition seeks to explore. The five artist included in the exhibition each proved that small is the new large for this exhibition.
The artists included in this exhibition are: Shane Harris, Linda Lopez, Nathan Prouty, Giselle Hicks, and Mathew McConnell.
