Get Small: The Third Annual Shrinky Dink Show 

When: Sat., Nov. 7, 7-11 p.m. 2015
Phone: 262-302-9035
Price: Free
In terms of the number of artists on the bill, the annual Get Small show put on by Session Space has consistently been huge. But it terms of artwork, it’s definitely tiny. The premise is simple: Local artists paint masterpieces onto Shrinky Dink paper, then zap them down to miniature size in the oven and cut them out for collecting pleasure. At last year’s show, prices ranged from $3 to $30 and the walls were nearly bare by the end of the evening, as people plucked their favorites off the wall for purchasing. It’s the most fun and affordable way to be an art collector for a night, and the little pieces are unlike others you’ll find elsewhere even from the same artists. Get Small 3 will be held at Turpentine Gallery (557 Forest St., Oakland) on November 7, at 7 p.m. If you’re serious about small art, you’ll get there early. — Sarah Burke
