A mainstay event for the Rochester Contemporary Art Center since 2008, the annual fundraising exhibition "6x6" returns this week with the opening party at 4 p.m. Billed as "The International Small Art Phenomenon," the 2018 iteration of the RoCo show features 3,278 artists and their works, all on six by six-inch squares. Specifically dubbed "6x6x2018," it's a great way to begin an art collection or add to your existing acquisitions. Opening party attendees can be among the first to purchase a piece, each at $20. A raffle to determine the first 20 buyers will take place at 7:30 p.m.; non-raffle purchases will begin at 8 p.m.
"6x6x2018" opens on Saturday, June 2, at RoCo, 137 East Avenue. 4 p.m. to 10 p.m. $12, advance ticket purchasing recommended. You can preview this year's set of works online now, and the exhibit continues through July 16. 461-2222. roco6x6.org.
