2024 Exhibition Calendar
Monochrome describes paintings, drawings, sculptures, designs, or photographs in one color or values of one color. The February birthstone is amethyst, a violet-to-purple variety of quartz. Purple is the color of royalty, but it can also be a descriptor, a mood perhaps, but absolutely a prompt for your imagination.
Side Street Studio Arts seeks artworks to celebrate our eleventh anniversary! As we start our second decade, this is a juried call to all artists working in any medium to participate.

SPECIAL GUEST ARTIST EXHIBITION
FREE Arts Ed Exhibition
Each year we host a weekly/monthly exhibit showcasing all the hard work our students have created during their summer arts classes.
In its dramatic return, RE:POP 2024 aims to showcase the dynamic experience that is printmaking. This call for work is focused on those artists dedicated to print media, i.e. paper, textiles, and the remainder of all printed arts.
Neither Here Nor There
In observance of Hispanic Heritage Month, Side Street Studio Arts seeks entries for Neither Here Nor There.
The first-generation experience has always been complex. Some feel a sense of pride and acceptance having been adopted into a new homeland, while others feel disconnected, without home and feeling they belong to both here and there, or neither. The first-generation experience can be full of contradictions.
This is a call for art from any artist to join in this conversation and is open to interpretation: Is it a contradiction? Do you feel connected to here? Or there? Both? Neither? Is it something else? What defines this experience for you? What is your experience or understanding of the first generation experience?
Something Wicked... 12
Side Street Studio Arts' 12th Annual Something Wicked... a variety of arts media whose subject matter is meant to instill a combined sense of wonder, awe and perhaps a little dread in the City of Elgin's art scene.
