June 19, 2008, Nederland, Colorado – NOWhere Limited Gallery is pleased to announce the upcoming exhibit: “Nonpareil.” Set to open this Fourth of July at NOWhere Limited in Nederland, Colorado, “Nonpareil” will feature small, figurative sculptures by more than 20 contemporary artists.
The theme of “Nonpareil” is the toy or doll as art. The gallery invited artists from near and far to create a unique or alter an existing 3-dimensional piece, no more than 12 inches in diameter. The results: an eclectic, fun mix of styles! The show will include everything from a one inch high likeness of T.V.’s Jerry Orbach to custom-painted “designer vinyl” to a functional bird house with a face.
More information and preview images of the exhibit will be available here, later this week.
