I AM Pocket Sized
Curated by Rhonda Cooper
June 28 – September 13, 2015
Reception: Sunday, June 28, from 1 – 4 PM
I AM Pocket Sized invited artists from around the world to create art that fits in the palm of your hand!
I AM Pocket Sized exhibits a large survey of paintings, drawings, collages, sculpture, and more.
In today’s art world, where the notion that bigger is better seems to be too-often taken for granted, it’s refreshing to see that contemporary artists are continuing to produce work on a small scale as well. While small-scale paintings and sculptures, or maquettes, have often been produced as preliminary studies for larger-scale works, the artists represented in the IAM’s current exhibition demonstrate that small works hold a valid and unique place of their own in an art world often dominated by more sizable creations.
“The Essential Element” is one of Bobbi Mastrangelo’s two rotating miniatures being exhibited at the Islip Art Museum. Here is the top view based on an actual manhole sized water cover.

THANK YOU! HOORAY !!!!
Owner of a “Grate Little” Lithograph:
The Little Grate Works items (rotating sculptures) are great!
Your art work keeps getting better and better.
Jon C. Schladweiler, P.E. Sewer Historian
Great that you’ll be in the show. Unfortunately I have plans for Sunday so i can’t make it.
Hope all is well in FL. I’ve been doing my scarves, but also some paintings. What a wonderful gift to love art.
You are “Pocket Sized and Monumental!”
Your miniatures were on their own shelf,
displayed at eye level.
Hal and I were so pleased to see your work
and of course we had to take a photograph.
Please give our very best to Al.
Stay well and “creative!”
Sandy and Hal
Sandy Wicker is a treasured, supportive friend, who manages to see many of the distant exhibits which I can’t attend.
I had the distinct pleasure of working with Sandy Wicker when she was the Amazing Reading Teacher and I was a Title One Tutor at Smithtown Elementary School.
