Gigantic Gallery will be turning one year old this March! We met a lot of great people during our first year and, to celebrate our birthday, we want to celebrate them.
So the theme of our March show is the carte de visite, which were small, mass-produced pictures mounted on paper that were hugely popular around the 1860s. Baseball and superhero cards, comp cards and business cards and wallet-sized photos can all trace their ancestry to the carte de visite.
We want this show to be about the artists we met this year. We invited the artists to make as many small, personally-expressive pieces as they cared to. We hope to fill the walls.
Please come visit us during the opening on March 1st. It could be huge.
