Small Expressions

Steller's Jays Out to Play by Virginia Ashby

November 4- December 31, 2023
Open 12 Noon to 5 PM Thursdays through Mondays
Jeanette Best Gallery
701 Water Street, Port Townsend, Washington

This year's juried show of small works is a vibrant celebration of local artists, in all of their passion and versatility. More than 100 works were selected from nearly 300 entries: many forms of fiber art, acrylics and oils, beaded sculptures, etchings, birds, stunning portraits, humorous portraits, abstract art — "I've never seen such diversity," volunteer Taine Gavin said as she welcomed the entries.

Each piece is no larger than 16 inches in any direction, illustrating that art need not be large to be quite powerful.

Small Expressions is an invitation to give art during the holiday season. We express our heartfelt thanks to the artists, and to those who support them by purchasing a one-of-a-kind creation to share with a loved one!

Here is a sampling from the show. If one of these works calls to you and you're too far away to visit the gallery, contact us at or 360-379-1086, extension 101.
