Right now, the Clay Studio in Philadelphia’s Old City neighborhood looks like a doll house lover’s dream. The walls hold dozens of Plexiglas cubes, 4 inches square. Inside each is a small artwork, created for the exhibit “Small Favors: Think Inside the Box.”
It’s the 13th year for the exhibit. Jennifer Zwilling, the studio’s artistic programs curator, said trends evolve from one year to the next.
“This year, there’s a lot of white,” she noted.
This year, the Clay Studio collaborated with the Center for Art in Wood. The woodworkers saw the size as a challenge, rather than a limitation, said center co-founder Albert LeCoff.
With entries ranging from the very tiny to others that spill out from the cube, he joked, “They’re thinking inside and outside the cube.”
“Small Favors: Think Inside the Box” continues at the Clay Studio and the Center for Art in Wood through May 27.
