Why Think Big? More about Small Works
If you've been to stARTup you know it's BIG. It's an immersive weekend in a hotel setting with art exhibitions in every room and installations, performances, music, and food filling the courtyards.
It's a grand idea on a grand scale.
So, why start a new fair called Small Works? Why turn the stARTup model on its ear?
About Small Works, Ray Beldner says, "We're always challenging our own notions about the art world and brainstorming ways to push our mission forward. Small Works is a natural progression of our focus to connect good artists with new audiences."
Everything about Small Works will be casual and approachable, from the Happy Hour Preview and food truck fare, to special installations and 40 tables of fantastic, original art. Everyone can leave this fair with a treasure that will fit in their home. It's an excellent opportunity for artists to experience stARTup Art Fair in a cozier, simpler framework that taps into a unique collector market.
And San Francisco's up and coming Dogpatch neighborhood is the perfect backdrop for our latest venture. The Small Works venue, 1599 Tennessee Street, is within walking distance of Minnesota Street Project, McEvoy Foundation for the Arts, and the Museum of Craft and Design.
Join us at 1599 Tennessee Street for our Happy Hour Preview: Friday, September 28, 6–9pm for food, wine, and music. The fair is also open Saturday, September 29, 11am–6pm and Sunday, September 30, 11am–5pm.
Tickets will be on sale by mid-August.
