Small Things Considered: 27th Small Works Invitational. Eighty artists from around Tucson and the greater arts community have come together for this exhibit at the Davis Dominguez Gallery full of small paintings, little sculptures and every other fine art medium. Each artists provides one piece that's 12"x12" or smaller and 18 inches high or shorter, and they fill the lobby, main gallery and salon gallery. It's not a show of miniatures, but rather a challenge to create a complete work of art in a modest amount of space. As if creating a complete work of art in any amount of space isn't a big enough challenge. Exhibit runs through June 22. Gallery hours are 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday through Friday and 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturdays. Davis Dominguez Gallery, 154 E. Sixth St. Free. Details here.
