Art Alliance Gallery Downtown presents In the Palm of Your Hand, the first of it’s annual “small art” group shows. In the spirit of the holiday season, we are bringing together artists who want to help you find the perfect unique piece of artwork for friends and family.  

Poet Munia Khan once wrote, “Dust is the parent of a star”. Inspired by the notion that little things inspire big ideas, the Art Alliance Gallery Downtown is bringing together a collection of small but extraordinary artworks for our new exhibition In the Palm of Your Hand. Ranging in media, style, and subject, these tiny treasures will remind you that it’s the little things that make life beautiful.
