BYU-Idaho Radio · Kyoung DaBell talks about Spori Art Gallery Exhibit "Small Works"

The exhibit “Small Works” will be held in the Spori Art Gallery from Jan. 13 to Feb. 15. Spori Art Gallery Curator, Kyoung DaBell, says it’s one of her favorite shows to put together. 

“We thought it would be a very fun treat for the community to come out and see these very dainty, fun pieces of art that we don’t normally get to see,” DaBell said.  

Just like the title says, the art work in this exhibit is especially small. Its smallest piece is 1.5 inches by 3 inches. The artwork ranges from watercolor, to etching, oil paintings, to pottery. 

The small pieces of art get a light shone on them, since they are tucked away most of the year.  

Since the festivities of the holiday season are over, DaBell shares that the gallery is a great place to visit with family and friends. 

“This is the perfect place to bring your family, or a church group for youth activities. It’s no doubt, the intriguing colors, the art pieces, I think it will be a conversation trigger a family can bond over,” she said. “I think there is so much fun and opportunity for a group together.”  

The free exhibit is located in the Spori Art Gallery in the Jacob Spori Building on BYU-Idaho’s campus. The reception is on Jan. 12 from 7 to 9 p.m. and the exhibit will be open until Feb. 15.
