Small Favors and Philadelphia Urban Potters & Guests Openings

  • The Clay Studio 137 North 2nd Street Philadelphia, PA, 19106 United States (map)

Small Favors engages artist’s creativity in new and exciting ways with the challenge of making pieces on a very small scale. For some artists, the work they create is similar to what they normally make but at a reduced scale. Others use it as an opportunity to break away from what they create in their daily studio practice. Regardless of this choice, the works exhibited are incredibly varied in material, form, and aesthetics. Though small in scale the artworks created for this exhibition are huge in impact. Each work is exhibited in a four-inch plexiglas wall mounted cube.

Conceived of in 2006, Small Favors grew out The Studio's efforts to offer accessible, high-quality artworks that appeal to art enthusiasts of all ages: for seasoned collectors who are challenged for space it allows them to continue to collect work by artists they love. For young art collectors it provides a financially accessible entry point.

The Clay Studio is once again partnering with The Philadelphia Potters Urban Studio Tour, now in its second year. This year we are highlighting large works by several artists involved in the tour, including Birdie Boone, Rebecca Chappell, Naomi Cleary, Michael Connelly, Bernadette Curran, Ryan J. Greenheck, Hiroe Hanazono, Bryan Hopkins, Brad Johnson, Kristen Kieffer, Roberta Massuch, Didem Mert, Doug Peltzman, Brenda Quinn, and Daniel Ricardo Teran.
