Calls to Artists: Studio Place Arts

The Gallery Committee at Studio Place Arts (SPA) in Barre announces these calls to artists for early 2019. For more information about each call and the requirements, visit

“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.
