Press release

The Arts Council of Greater New Haven presents Small Works, Big City, an exhibition curated by Jennifer Jane, in the Sumner McKnight Crosby Jr. Gallery, 70 Audubon St., 2nd floor. The exhibition will be on display during business hours from Wed., Dec. 1 through Fri., Jan. 14. A public reception is scheduled for Thurs., Dec. 9, from 5—7 p.m.

Curated by New Haven artist Jennifer Jane, Small Works, Big City is an exhibition of photography by established and emerging local photographers Chad Anderson, Kathy Conway, Sean Corbett, Jay Cusano, Sara DeGennaro, Angela Gately, John T. Hill, Linda Lindroth, Robert Lisak, Sven Martson, Jordan Nodelman, Thomas Strong, Brittany Whiteman and Joann Wilcox.

The exhibit will showcase works of 8”x10” or smaller, featuring urban images of New Haven and cities worldwide. Small Works, Big City captures the physicality and essence of a city within a petite viewing plane.

Works will be available to the public for purchase at accessible prices, transforming the acquisition of an original artwork from reach to reality.

Curator Jennifer Jane discusses the origin of the exhibit: “The idea for the show came together as we were trying to think of something fun and inviting for holiday gift givers. I asked the photographers to contribute images that were taken in big cities…actually showing people on the street, architecture, that kind of thing.” Through Small Works, Big City, she continues to cultivate relationships with and opportunities for emerging photographers by juxtaposing their work with that of more established professional photographers.

Couple Angela Gately and Jay Cusano are two such emerging photographers hoping for some exposure through Small Works, Big City. The pair produces photographs exploring New York City’s streets through images of the homeless, graffiti, and other urban vistas. Their works will appear side by side with the likes of well-established local photographer John T. Hill, a photographer and graphic artist known for his contributions to New Haven’s art scene for many years.
