Small works, no larger than 11 inches on any side, will be on display at Maryland Federation of Art's 9th Annual Small Wonders exhibition.

Artwork will be on view at MFA’s Circle Gallery, 18 State Circle, Annapolis, Maryland from December 1 through December 28, 2011.

The juror, Georgia Deal, Professor and Printmaking Department Chair, at Corcoran College of Art + Design, selected the all media exhibition from entries submitted throughout the United States and Canada. In her juror statement, she writes, "When viewing entries for the Small Wonders exhibition this year, I was impressed with the wide range of media submitted as well as the overall high quality of the artworks." She added, "Often I found myself checking the dimensions, as some works seemed to defy their stated size."
