Where did the time go? It’s already time for another PRE-SHRUNK show at Argyle Fine Art! YAY! Rejoice!  Small art brings JOY!

The 19th annual art show launches on Friday, January 27th, 7pm-9pm. (masks are encouraged). Creatives from all over Canada are participating in this juried exhibit where all artists were asked to create works that were 4” x 5”. This year we have close to 400 works in the show--the largest show of smalls ever! Each original work of art sells for $175 each. 

Expect to see the unexpected- in all different mediums including painting, textile, photography, collage, sculpture and more! The show will continue in person and online until February 21st, but drop by sooner than later! This little show will shrink as works sell! As always, it’s always FREE TO VISIT THE GALLERY ANYTIME!

Enjoy a few sneak peeks below...more coming later this week too!

Small art is a great way to begin an art collection or just add some beauty to your work or living space and a fabulous way to support small business and artists. It’s the little things…😊 


Artist Paulette Melanson has planted a full garden of paintings this year!

We love this show as a gallery because we meet so many new artists in our community and abroad. Viewers have so much fun because it’s a feast for your eyes and soul, and there is truly something for everyone. Artists enjoy it as a way to meet other artists and get inspired for the year of art making ahead.
