Good Things. Word is they come in small packages, and the size estimate is just about right for the Annual Small Works Show at MA Doran Gallery, 3509 S. Peoria Ave. Local artists take on the grueling task of fitting their flair into the tiniest package possible, maxed out with style and hopefully soon to deck someone's halls. If you don't peruse, you'll lose, so come check out the small stuff. Gallery hours are 10:30am-6pm. For more info visit madorangallery.com.
