“Celebrate”: Annual Holiday Show
November 13-December 27, 2018
Deadline: Friday, October 12, 2018

Artists who are members of Studio Place Arts (SPA) are invited to share their work in a major show during the holiday gift-giving season. The show includes a diverse selection of fine art and crafts displayed creatively on all 3 floors of the SPA art center.

Note: Contact SPA no later than Friday, October 12, 2018, if you are interested in showing a selection of your work in the show. Your SPA membership needs to be current. The reception takes place Saturday, November 17, 4-6PM. Visit SPA’s website for more information about membership and space limitations for work for this show.

“Strictly Sedimentary”
January 22-March 9, 2019
Deadline: Friday, November 30, 2018

This show includes all of the layered artwork that defines collage art, including, but not limited to, various papers, wood, stone, fabric, photographs, Mylar, cardboard, wax & foil. (Actual layers are desired more than manipulated computer images.)

“The Deep Blue”
March 19-May 4, 2019
Deadline: Friday, February 1, 2019

Oceans cover more than 70% of our globe and they are teeming with life, from single celled organisms and invertebrates to giant sea mammals, to yet undiscovered monsters lurking in the depths! This group show includes 2-D and 3-D artworks, real or imagined, that are inspired by oceanic life forms.

We invite traditional and non-traditional media (e.g., use the plastics that you’re keeping from being dumped into the ocean) and proposals for installations.

“Fault Lines”
May 14-June 29, 2019
Deadline: Friday, March 29, 2019

Whether it’s derived from “real news” or “fake news”, the fractures in our world threaten political discontinuity at many levels and potential explosive energy. We are confronted with the historical, echoing cries of “America First”, digital media posts that are fixated on dystopian futures, and the “Q-anon” conspiracy theorists. Whose fault is it and how do we respond? Artists are urged to consider a myriad of current topics that contribute to the fault lines in a variety of traditional and nontraditional media; installations (including building a wall to divide one portion of the gallery from the other side) are welcome.
