Gallery prepares for sale/swap meet of Small Works

With thanks to the more than 150 artists who contributed, SVA – The Sheboygan Visual Artists – has topped their goal. More than 300 Small Works will be available at the “Original Art for Everyone” event on Friday July 28th at EBCO ArtWorks, 1201 Erie Avenue in Sheboygan WI.

Small Works are original art creations in a variety of mediums, including paintings, photographs, molded paper, even pottery, fabric, glass, and jewelry.

“We chose 8 x10 inches for the two-dimensional pieces so they would be convenient for folks to frame and display, to take home or even give to friends, relatives, or customers,” explains Dorothy Block, Co-Chair of SVA’s Small Works Project.

“And to make them afford- able for nearly anyone” adds Tim Ebenreiter, the other Co- Chair. “Normally, work by some of these artists could cost more than $1,000”.

Members of SVA are selling Claim Tickets for $20 each. Tickets also are available at Lakeshore Art Supply, 1109 North 8th Street in Sheboygan, or online at On the day of the event, tickets will be available at the door for $25 each.

Images of some of this year’s Small Works may be previewed on Facebook at sheboygan visual artists: small works project.

On Friday, July 28th, patrons will go to EBCO ArtWorks between 4 and 8 pm to redeem each ticket for a randomly-selected Small Work. “Then the fun begins!” promises Ebenreiter.

“If you like your Small Work, guard it with your life. If you covet another, you might negotiate a trade with another patron. Or instantly select any Small Work you want from our Trading Wall.”

“This is the most fun you can have in an art gallery anywhere!

“In the end, everyone wins,” claim the organizers, “because everyone gets a piece of original art and the proceeds support SVA programs and art-in-the community projects.”

As a bonus, more than 160 artworks from SVA’s 10th Anniversary show will be on display in the main gallery.

EBCO ArtWorks is at 1201 Erie Avenue in Sheboygan, WI.
