Small Format The XXXVI Certamen de Pequeño Formato (36th Contest of Small Format) was held from 1st to 28th December 2017 in the Sala Primavera (Spring Hall) in the Junta Municipal de Arganzuela (Arganzuela’s Town Council) organized by the Spanish Association of Painters and Sculptors (AEPE). It included sections such as painting, watercolour, drawing, sculpture and engraving. One of our spiders’ paintings called “small gothic” was chosen by the jury to enter this contest. Usually there are so few contest devoted to small format. Little importance is attached to these tiny works although this is a distinguishing mark in the work of so many and relevant artists.
