Give art for Christmas – get it at Art Interiors’s 16th Annual Festival of Smalls

If you want a great inexpensive gift idea for someone this Christmas and you are in the Toronto area, I suggest you check out the 16th Annual Festival of Smalls. Art Interiors is a wonderful gallery in Toronto that annually features smaller works by fine artists at  low prices. There’s a wide array of art works that would appeal to anyone. And at those prices, you can afford it.

One of my favourite artists, Emily Bickell, is featured again. I love her abstract water paintings, like this one:

As well, a friend of mine, Jay Hodgins, has a number of his pieces featured in the Festival, including this one, which I really like:

If you are wondering: are they all abstract, then I give you this great work of Canadiana by Elizabeth Lennie, called Shinny 20 (appropriately enough):


Go check out the site, here: Art Interiors.

Better yet, go to the gallery and buy something for someone. Oh, and sure, get something for yourself, too. 🙂

  1. Great idea, but when is it?

  2. I love the Smalls concept as a way of packaging art and making it appeal to buyers who may be looking for a small piece (as well as a smaller price tag). And giving art for Christmas is one way of giving a little spiritual nourishment at the same time as giving something that can be forever enjoyed. I invite you to also visit which is a new startup that is also promoting the gift of art as a way of sharing a love for art. Any comments are welcome here or on our blog as well. Thanks for the post!-Julian, General Manger, ArtAnwhere

  3. Hey, thanks for featuring my work again on your blog! I am sending a few brand new smalls to Art Interiors tomorrow – just a heads up!

      You’re welcome! I think you are a great painter, and I think your work is aesthetically appealing and very intelligent. Simply put: smart! How could I not feature such work on a blog for smart people I know. 🙂
