To hit a big target audience, the folks at Eye of the Eagle Art are aiming small - 6 inches by 6 inches small.
Since it opened in October 2008, the gallery in Clayton has held several exhibitions to bring out local art connoisseurs, said Bonnie Light, who helps her daughter, Donna Light-Pfledderer, run the gallery.
But even with a variety of paints, oils, sculptures, mixed media and other art on display, the duo say their most popular exhibit has been their "World's Largest Tiny Art Show." "It's really been a hit," Light said. "We've seen people of all types."
Nearly every piece in the tiny art show is smaller than 6 inches by 6 inches, costs less than $50 and is the work of a local artist. "We just wanted to do something different for people who can't afford larger pieces," Light-Pfledderer said. "This is for those people who like art and want something original but don't want to spend too much." (Tiny Art A Big Hit cont.)
