"It's a Small World"

Being little is big in "It's a Small World." The international miniature art show celebrates the teeny and tiny with works no larger than four inches by four inches. Gallery-goers can size up (or down, as it were) pocket-friendly paintings and drawings of animals, body parts, rustic scenes and more by artists such as Marion Winter, Mona Diane Conner and Dan Lednicer. And remember, the smaller it is, the harder they have to work (still talkin' about art here, folks). Artists use magnifying glasses and careful hands to add the final, arthritis-inducing touches to create scenes as detailed as they are diminutive. Have a squint-see from 5 to 10 p.m. By appointment through October 3. Elder Street Gallery, 1101 Elder Street. For information, call 281-250-4889 or visit www.elderstreetartist.com. Free.
Sat., Sept. 19, 5-10 p.m.; Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays-Sundays. Starts: Sept. 19. Continues through Oct. 3, 2009
