The  exhibition  incorporates  diverse  art  styles,  themes,  mediums  and  frames  in  an  eclectic  and  harmonious salon  style  hang.  With  all  works  under  1m  in  width  and  height  the  exhibition  showcases  works  by  artists  on a small  scale.

 A  stunning  display  of  works  from  all  Gallery  represented  artists  including   Bernard  Ollis,  Carlos 
Barrios,  David  Hayes,  Deirdre  Bean,  Franck  Gohier,   Geoff  Todd,  George  Gittoes,  Jeff  Makin,  Joel 
Rea,   Margaret  Loy  Pula,  Min  Woo  Bang,  Mirra  Whale,  Steve  Lopes  and  Stewart  MacFarlane. 
The  exhibition  inspires  viewers  to  not  think  big  but  to  take  time  to  look  at  the  smaller  things  and 
to  be  encouraged  to  be  adventurous  in  displaying  art  in  a  space.  
Showcased  in  a  salon  style  hang  the  exhibition  features  large  groupings  of  paintings, 
watercolours  and  ceramics  all  presented  together  in  a  visually  stimulating  display. 
Salon-­‐style  hanging  dates  back  to  17th  century  Paris  and  involves  grouping  art  pieces  together. 

It  offers  several  advantages  for  viewing  work  including: 
•  more  artworks  can  be  displayed  in  a  space,  
•  the  variated  approach  allows  for  connections  or  contrasts  between  multiple  works, 
    styles,  mediums,  or  artists. 
•  a  display  can  be  added  to  over  a  period  of  time. 

There  are  no  rules  as  to  how  you  display  works.  You  can  follow  colour  combinations  or  a  theme 
for  each  wall. 
‘Petite’  demonstrates  how  enthusiasts  can  start  small  and  create  their  own  works  of  art,  and 
encourage  collectors  to  maximize  their  wall  space,  in  their  own  unique  style.  

The  exhibition  is  showing  at  Mitchell  Fine  Art  in  Fortitude  Valley  Brisbane  from  22  November 
until  Saturday  23rd  December. 

Mitchell Fine Art is open from 10:00 AM to 5:00 PM.
The  gallery  can  be  followed  on  Facebook  or  Instagram  or  sign  up  to  the  gallery's  mailing  list  via 
the  website.
