Emerge Gallery & Art Space is pleased to present Petit: A Group Exhibition of Smaller Sized Art. Over fifty local artists from the Hudson Valley and New York Metropolitan area are participating in this exhibition. Petit will be exhibited from November 4 - December 4, 2017, with a  reception on Saturday, November 4, 2017, from 5-8 PM. Artwork will also be available to view and purchase on-line at

The artwork included in Petit is a collection of various styles and mediums — acrylic, collage, digital, encaustic, illustration, mixed media, oil, photography, sculpture, wearable art— all sized 12” x 12” and under. 

Included in Petit is work by Charlann Meluso from her Flowers on Abstract Series where she artistically combines her photographs of flora and abstract backgrounds. “What I see and photograph must capture both my eye and soul and also have visual impact,“ she explains. “(My work) will evoke a feeling or reaction with the viewer with whom I strive to make a similar connection.”  Also participating is artist Maria Kolodziej-Zincio who combines multiple layers of beeswax — sourced from her own hives —  and mixed media to create scenes of nature brought to life with color and texture; Paul Mindell who combines his original photographs of cows with his original paintings; and cut paper artist Istar Schwager who uses envelopes and various textured and decorative papers in creating her cut paper collages. 

The November window installation will feature the work of artist Betsy Wilson who uses all recycled and repurposed materials. The installation will consist of small dress forms adorned with various materials — fabrics, jewelry and other items. Wilson creates themes with her various dress forms.  

This exhibition and Emerge Gallery offer an affordable option for giving the gift of art to someone special this holiday season — a gift of art is a gift of the heart. The art included in Petit guarantees that visitors will find a work that speaks to them and someone they love.

Emerge Gallery & Art Space focuses on emerging artists from the Hudson Valley, NY, region and beyond by hosting monthly group art exhibitions, poetry readings and musical performances. It is a very open and welcoming environment that is a wonderful setting for private parties and gatherings and is available for rental. The space is also available to rent for solo and privately curated exhibitions.
