Upcoming ASA Show

Rites of Spring
Friday, March 3 to Saturday, April 8, 2017

Rites of Spring: You don't have to dance a pagan ritual or even listen to Shostakovich to participate in Rites of Spring! ASA's spring member show is a chance to share any of your art which celebrates any aspect of the season we most wait for in Ohio. It’s a very wide net being cast and you get to interpret as you choose. Anything that says “SPRING” to you!
The show will run March 3 through April 8 with submissions dates of Fri, Feb 24 & Sat, Feb 25 from 10am–12pm. The opening reception will take place on Friday, March 3 from 5–8pm. Cost is $15 for up to three submissions, one piece is guaranteed to be included in the show. All applicants are required to sign up for a gallery sitting time on delivery of work.
