Small Matter

An Exhibition of Small Works
March 18, 2023 - April 18, 2023

Maya Gallery is delighted to present Small Matter, showcasing a diverse collection of small works by a talented group of artists from Singapore. 

Discover the beauty and creativity of these miniature masterpieces as you explore the gallery space. The exhibition features a wide range of styles and mediums, including paintings, sculptures, photographs and more. From intricate paintings to delicate sculptures, A project initiated by Masturah Sha'ari, co-founding and director of the gallery, the aim is to showcase how the smallest of artworks can come together to create something truly remarkable. Each piece may be small, but mighty in its own way; each work represents a unique perspective and creative vision. This is a great opportunity to  support our local artists, add to your art collection or to find that special piece for your home or office, and experience the magic of small art!

Close to 50 artists were selected from a nationwide Open Call from October 2022! We were impressed with the creativity, quality and originality of their submissions, knowing they will make a valuable contribution to the exhibition.
