> DESCRIPTION

Back in 2005 we launched the Magnitude 7 project with the idea that small works would be easier and more affordable for artists to send to Manifest from anywhere in the world. This proved true, and right off it was this project that lead to Manifest gaining the tag line 'a neighborhood gallery for the world.' This iteration of the exhibit is no different, with works coming together from all across the U.S. and the countries of Argentina, Canada, and Finland.

Inevitably Mag 7 is a melange of various works, including an extremely wide range of media, styles, and artist intents.The exhibit always gains unity from the common scale, so even disparate works seem to engage in playful and tolerant conversation across the gallery or side by side. We have found that having a couple galleries full of hand-sized works is somehow a relief steeped in the joy of small things well made, a menagerie of creativity, and a poignant reminder that bigger is not always better.

We are delighted to offer this ninth annual exhibit of works no larger than seven inches in any dimension.

For this incarnation of the project 253 artists from 40 states and 17 different countries submitted 523 works for consideration by Manifest's rigorous jury process. Thirty-two works by the following 27 artists from 18 states and 3 countries were selected for presentation in the gallery and catalog.
