Jacob Aguilar, “Bursting,” pastel, 6 x 8 inches

Galleries and museums across the nation are in the full swing of their holiday shows, including the Brinton Museum in Big Horn, Wyoming, which is currently showcasing nearly 300 artworks by 101 artists from across the country.

On view now through December 17 at the Brinton Museum, “The Brinton 101” — formerly the “Small Works Show” — is an all-media invitational that includes affordable, exceptional paintings, sculptures, and mixed media pieces in a variety of themes. While sizes vary, each artist was asked to create works in an 8 x 10-inch configuration, with sculptures in a size range of 12 inches in height, and a base not to exceed 8 x 10 inches. The intent of the show is to expand a collective appreciation for new and known artists, and the significance of small works.
