First held in 1904, the Little Pictures Show & Sale is the oldest and largest exhibition of its kind in the United States. This year, the beloved tradition turns 114 and continues to be a strong source of pride for the historic Providence Art Club. It is the Art Club’s most popular exhibition of the year and a tradition where generations of New Englanders have purchased affordably priced fine art.

The Little Pictures Show will take place throughout the Art Club’s three historic gallery spaces located on Providence’s charming College Hill steps from the First Baptist Church in America. Over 100 artists, all members of the Providence Art Club, will take part. Works on view will include paintings, drawings, photographs, collages, hand-pulled prints, hand made artist books, along with sculpture, ceramics, glass, and jewelry. All works are sized at 16” x 16” or less and priced at no more than $300. With such a breadth and diversity of styles and media present, there is truly something for everyone.

Sales are “cash and carry”; meaning purchased works may be taken home immediately. New works then replace works that have been sold. This results in a constantly changing exhibition of local, affordable artwork; perfect for gift-giving.

This show is the perfect opportunity for art lovers to purchase works for their own collection, or find a unique gift for friends and loved ones. It is also a great way to explore the Providence Art Club and learn more about the artists who make up the membership of one of the oldest arts organizations in the nation. We hope to see you this holiday season!
