Sometimes smaller is better. That’s the idea behind the Tiny Illustrations group show happening at Rick Rhodes Photography and Imaging Studios this month. Artist Baird Hoffmire, who recently moved back to town after a 12-year hiatus, put together the show, inviting fellow artists Marcus Amaker, Erin Banks, Tim Banks, Ben Timpson, and Farrah Hoffmire to participate. The opening reception is Fri. Jan. 6 from 6-10 p.m. The event will include music from 54 Bicycles and poetry from Amaker.
