Shaping Wholeness: Asian American Artists Create, May 2003
Presented by the Asian American Arts Centre and the Queens Health Network

The wholeness of their being through art is expressed by artists.  This ability is a gift that is the special provenance of the creative disciplines. These are young artists, whose diversity in background, media, and outlook exemplify the Asian American community in Queens, and across the nation.

For over a quarter of a century the Small Works Show has provided a forum for both established and undiscovered artists working in small format.  This juried exhibit includes artworks in every medium imaginable, and offers the opportunity to see together in one place in New York City hundreds of artworks selected from thousands of local and international entries.

This year's Small Works was juried by art dealer and author Molly Barnes, of Molly Barnes Gallery in California and Studio 18 in New York.  The unique concept of the competition dictates that all works submitted for possible exhibition measure twelve inches or less in every dimension.  Throughout the years, ten of thousands of artists contributing from Europe, Asia, Africa, Australia, and our own hemisphere, have challenged this size restriction with innovative and exciting creations. Although often imitated, the diversity and consistent quality of artworks exhibited in the Small Works is rarely matched.
