We invite artists to submit their artwork for consideration for future shows.
Emailed submissions should be sent to: email@example.com
We are currently accepting submissions for the following SPA exhibits:
Spoken, written, and signed language is distinctively human. What do the connected sounds and symbols of words suggest for the visual arts? We're thinking of diverse languages and letterforms (real or invented), new communication technologies, censorship, graffiti, collage, and urgent messages. We are looking for a variety of media, including books and installations. (main fl gallery)
Deadline: April 6, 2018
Show Dates: May 22 – June 30, 2018
This show includes artwork that feels the burn … The group show involves work where the effects of heat and fire can be easily seen and experienced, including encaustic media, singed paper and other ephemeral materials, charred wood, pit-fired vessels, and some hammered metal and blown glass objects. Ideal for the pyro-manic artist, (however, no burning artwork in the gallery due to fire safety measures in place because of an epic fire in the historic building 20 years ago that SPA occupies). We are looking for nontraditional and traditional media, small installations, 2-D and 3-D works. (main fl gallery)
Deadline: May 18, 2018
Show Dates: July 10 – August 24, 2018
