The overwhelming success of the Art of the Heartland National Competition, combined with the trend toward building a collection of numerous small paintings that can be grouped in a limited space, prompted the formation in 2017 of the “Small Works National Competition.” This competition is an exciting one, filling the gallery with an array of beautiful and often whimsical paintings from some of the best artists in the United States. It’s a must see for art lovers and collectors seeking original, appreciable art at more affordable prices.
