Since 3,500 B.C. wheels have kept the world rolling. In cars or on bikes, skateboards or trains, on first dates or road trips, on vacations we’ll never forget; from the wheels of commerce, to the wheels of life, wheels take us wherever we want to go. Show us what wheels mean to you! SPA is looking for 2-D, 3-D, and installation work about, made from, or including wheels. Let’s get the wheels turning!
Deadline for Proposals: December 4, 2020
Exhibit Dates: January 26 – March 6, 2021
Up, Up & Away!
It’s a bird, a plane … wait. This show is about flight of all kinds. We envision a gallery filled with energetic artwork including such things as rockets lifting off, winged animals in flight, falling leaves, people being shot from cannons, confetti in free fall, super heroes, and where your imagination takes you. SPA is interested in 2-D work and installations careening, flying or floating from the walls and the ceiling, using traditional and non-traditional media.
Deadline for Proposals: January 29, 2021
Exhibit Dates: March 16 – May 1, 2021
The Cranbrook Academy of Art located in Bloomfield Hills, Michigan, is known as one of the preeminent centers of education in fine art, crafts, design, and architecture since the early 1930s. SPA will be honoring the late Marc Awodey, local artist and art critic, who attended Cranbrook, by organizing an exhibit in 2021 of work by those in our area who also attended Cranbrook.
Exhibit Dates: May 11 – June 26, 2021
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 21, 2021
Deadline for Submissions: May 15, 2021
