Small Expressions Touring Exhibit

We produce fiber art exhibits to provide opportunities for fiber artists to show their works while building support from the viewing public for this traditional art form that is being presented in a modern format.

Affordable and easy to install, our world-class exhibition requires minimal space while offering enhanced opportunities to engage and educate your visitors.

Small Expressions is an annual juried exhibition showcasing contemporary small-scale works (not to exceed 15 inches in any direction) using fiber techniques in any media. Small in scale but visually compelling, HGA’s Small Expressions exhibit features work that speaks to the intricacy of expression, intimacy of design, thoughtful communication, and visual excitement. The artists in this exhibit create a big impact through small pieces.
