A celebration of small ceramic work, "Good Things...come in small packages" opens at Flower City Arts Center this week, providing a great opportunity to tick some names off your gift list while supporting makers. Each piece in the show measures no more than eight inches long, high, or wide — it's a given that there will be mugs; there will also be small sculptural work. The show is juried by ceramicist Tim See, who selected works by 22 artists from 15 states, including an array of local makers.
An opening reception will be held on Friday, November 10, from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. The show continues through December 21 at the Firehouse Gallery at Flower City Arts Center (713 Monroe Avenue). Also on view at the center and continuing through December 21 is "From the Seeds of Cucumber Alley: Celebrating 40 Years of Photography," a fundraiser exhibit of archival materials and photos by volunteers and staff. Free admission. 271-5183; rochesterarts.org.
