Artists Exhibit ‘Gift-Sized’ Works in Haven Gallery’s “Little Big”

A gift is more than just a gift. Rather, a gift is a little way that we can express our 'biggest' feelings for others. This philosophy is at the heart of Haven Gallery's upcoming exhibition, "Little Big", showcasing 8x10 inch "gift-sized" works by a selection of international artists. Opening on November 21st, "Little Big" will feature new works by Michael Ramstead, Sarah Joncas, Lauren Marx, Meredith Marsone, Brian Mashburn, Chris Mars, Josie Morway, Jessica Gordon, Genevive Zacconi, Dilkabear, and Christina Mrozik, just to name a few. Their works are as varied in theme as their styles, with motifs of the season as we enter these winter months.

Their works are as varied in theme as their styles, with motifs of the season as we enter these winter months. New paintings by Sarah Joncas and Lauren Marx, for instance, feature elements such as winter’s bare branches and color palette of cool tones. Even the animals in Brian Mashburn’s portraits seem to feel the onset of winter, as dark clouds approach them. Others such as Michael Ramstead, who portrays a young girl looking on as a scarecrow guards a golden field, take inspiration from this season of harvesting. Take a look at these works and more in our preview below, courtesy of the gallery.

Since ancient times, music and visual art have been an important source of passing down stories through the generations, and musicians and artists have drawn upon each other for inspiration and stimulation. Music has inspired some of the most progressive art of our time from impressionist artists like Whistler and Monet, to the abstract painting of Kandinskv, and Pop artworks and experimental films by Andy Warhol. For their upcoming group exhibition "Music Box", Haven Gallery in New York called upon a new generation of international artists to interpret their own musical inspirations: Matt Dangler, Dilka Bear, Thomas Dodd, Travis Lewis, Jana Brike, Mandy Tsung, Laura Shull, Kaspian Shore, Josie Morway, Jel Ena, Nicolaus Ferry, Mandy Cao, Chris Sheridan, Mahlimae, Michael Ramstead, Scott Grimando, Meredith Marsone, Joseph Weinreb, Sasha Ira, Nicolas Bruno, Brendon Flynn, Stephanie Law, SoMK, Poppy Lawman, Janet Cook, and Michael C. Hayes.
There is a world of hidden meaning in classic children's literature that dates back centuries. Tales like Cinderella, Hansel and Gretel, and Alice's Adventures in Wonderland explore dark and sometimes violent themes, in counterpart to the friendlier The Cat in the Hat and Winnie-the-Pooh. These stories provide the inspiration of Modern Eden Gallery's upcoming group show "Storybook: An Art Journey Through Childhood" opening on April 25th. Curated by the Warholian's Michael Cuffe, the exhibition features over 65 artists including Jasmine Becket-Griffith, Ciou, Jana Brike, Leilani Bustamante, Steve Chmilar, Aunia Kahn, Edith Lebeau, Calvin Ma, David Natale, Lori Nelson, Richard James Oliver, Peca, Michael Ramstead, Isabel Samaras, Erika Sanada, Hannah Yata, just to name a few.
