Shows & Opportunities:
SPA Studio Residency Program:
SPA is inviting emerging artists from the greater Barre/Montpelier area to apply for an 11-month studio residency program that will take place Nov. 13, 2021 to October 31, 2022. A small private studio on the second floor of the visual arts center will be provided at no charge to an emerging artist who wants to build a new body of work for exhibition.

The Parade is Coming!
This vibrant show includes work in a variety of media and installations that depict the excitement, content, and vivid colors associated with parades -- marching bands, floats, color guards, politicians working the crowd, parade stands, and characters in the parade audience -- as well as more solemn processions and marches. In addition to works on the walls, we will assemble a parade involving a group of artists’ sculptural works in a variety of media. Join the parade! Individual works in this part of the show (floats, marchers, vehicles, animals, musicians, and etc.) should measure approximately 12-36 inches high.
Exhibit Dates: July 6 - August 20, 2021
Deadline for Submissions: May 15, 2021
