Small works for small spaces

BLUE HILL — Love art, but can’t afford to buy original pieces?

Blue Hill Peninsula Micro Galleries will open Friday, May 17, in the form of a converted vintage vending machine at Fairwinds Florist located at 5 Main St.

Sihaya Hopkins, Jennifer Morrow, Christine Leith, Cory Paradise, Michele Levesque, Amelia Poole, Buzz Masters, Michael Rossney, Holly Meade and Cullen Schneider are the artists whose work will be for sale in the “ArtBox” vending machine. The artwork includes: tattoos, photos, paintings, textiles, glass beadwork and mixed-media works.

On May 17, Blue Hill Peninsula Micro Galleries will officially open for business at a reception from 5 to 7 p.m. at Fairwinds Florist. Shoppers can check out the ArtBox vending machine stocked with the diminutive artworks. Each piece fits inside a 2¼-by-5-inch box.

Many of the 10 artists will be on hand and large-scale versions of their artwork displayed on the shop’s walls.
