L E S P E T I T S T R AV A U X (or small works) are capable of conveying all the beauty and power of larger works, but possess a magic and an intimacy which is unique to them alone. They invite the viewer to engage with them at close range, pulling you in to appreciate their detail and technique. Small works & Miniatures have always created a feeling of preciousness and tactility - compact enough to be held in the hand like a treasured object or jewel, the skill demanded in their creation should not be overlooked.
Join us at Aarwun Gallery to open this unique exhibtion which celebrates the small & the beautiful, as a dozen of our artists contribute original artworks which are small in size but big on impact.

Welcome to Aarwun Gallery. We are proud to have been part of the cultural fabric of Canberra for over eighteen years. We describe our collection as rich and eclectic. Old and new works hang side by side on our walls. We represent some of Australia's finest classical landscape and portrait artists as well as carrying a wide portfolio of stunning contemporary works. Heritage treasures from Norman Lindsay, Pro Hart and David Boyd sit alongside exquisite dot works from the indigenous community. Paintings, printmaking, ceramics, glass, bronze and sculpture; we embrace the endless diversity of the best which Australia has to offer. Open seven days and by appointment in the evening, find us on Federation Square in Canberra's Gold Creek.
