From the vast stores of longtime mail artist Josh Ronsen's Tiny Art Project comes this display of more than 500 works of art that are smaller than 1” square and created by artists from Texas, from across the nation, from around the world: "Paintings, drawings, pieces woven from thread and fiber, tiny stamps, tiny books, even a modern-art museum made for ants." And now they're elegantly arranged for all to see, in a place that's already like heaven for bibliophiles. Recommended. Reception: Sun., Jan. 26, 2-6pm.
