We are currently accepting submissions for the following SPA exhibits:
Gallery Shows in 2019-20:
Ralph Waldo Emerson wrote that eyes indicate the antiquity of the soul; others have observed that eyes mimic a window. Happiness, sorrow, playfulness, affection, suspicion, fright, attraction, and many other feelings can be readily shown by the combined use of eyes, brows, and eyelids. Narratives unfold with simple gestures: the roll of the eye, the widening or narrowing of both eyes, downcast eyes. This show invites artists to share work that focuses on eyes, whether human, animal or imaginary creature and one, two or multiple sets of eyes … the better to see you with, my dears! (main floor gallery)
Exhibit Dates: July 9 – August 23, 2019
Deadline for Entries: May 24, 2019
