FrameWorks' Small Works: Affordable Art for Small Spaces opens Friday December 2

Koenig FrameWorks is hosting its annual holiday small works show "Small Works: Affordable Art for Small Spaces", with over 140 pieces of framed, ready-to-hang original art made by local artists, each priced under $100. The exhibit and sale runs from Friday, December 2, to Saturday, December 24, 2011.

The opening reception is Friday, December 2, from 6 pm - 9 pm. Koenig FrameWorks is located at 97 South Main St., Newtown, CT.

The night coincides with Newtown's Ram Pasture holiday tree lighting. If you've never seen it, it is particularly beautiful, because the historic homes on Main Street put luminaria on their front lawns lighting the way to the tree. The tree lighting festivities start at 6:30 and the tree is illuminated at 7 pm. Then you can head on over to FrameWorks.

They are encouraging photographers to enter "images of any location, setting, or thing that portrays a fantastical element. It could be hidden, or leak into the real world. It may entirely occur in a fantasy world."
