The number 7 has long been touted as a number with significant and noteworthy properties. Having influence in spirituality, magic, and even memory, the number 7 conjures images imbedded in our day to day lives.

As we enter our seventh year, we invite you to submit visual works in relation to the number 7 for our YEAR 7 anniversary exhibition. 

     On March 6, Side Street Studio Arts will celebrate our 7th anniversary with our annual juried art exhibition. We will host a multi-disciplinary, rambling celebration encompassing all of our spaces, Gallery, Theater, and Lab. The heart of this celebration will be a visual art exhibition displayed throughout our buildings and spaces. Any and all mediums are welcome. 

We will accept work until the walls are full. You may only submit ONE work of art!  Top judges selections will receive Side Street prize packages, including cold hard cash. The Crowd Favorite (voted on during the opening reception) will receive a prize package including a Side Street LAB Membership!

     This exhibit will be open to the public Friday, March 6 through Sunday, March 29, with an Opening Reception and Anniversary Celebration on First Friday, March 6 from 6-10pm. Submissions for YEAR 7 must be received by Thursday, February 7 at 7pm and must be dropped off Sunday, March 1 between 11am and 3pm.  

Absolutely no late submissions will be accepted.

     Submissions are limited to 1 work, no series will be accepted.
