The Florence Regional Arts Alliance is pleased to present Small Works 2020 ONLINE! Small Works Juried Competition consists of artworks no larger than 12 inches square to feature work from both emerging and professional artists and selected from a wide range of media. Small Works purpose is to promote visual artists and highlight new arts spaces. The smaller size of the artwork allows for an affordable way for local arts patrons to either compliment, add to, or begin a personal art collection. The Florence Regional Arts Alliance is proud to partner with University Place Gallery in downtown Florence. University Place Gallery is a visual art gallery on the first floor of the newly renovated Rainwater Building. University Place Gallery is an extension of Francis Marion University and is located at 142 N. Dargan Street, Florence, SC. (https://www.fmarion.edu/universityplace/)
