The Spring Equinox
When Day and Night are Equal
The dominance of darkness ends, signaling the return of fertility. New leaves appear on the trees. Crops sprout. Birds mate. Earth life regenerates in the emergence of new light. The great Sphinx of Giza gazes precisely at the rising of the Equinox sun.
OCA’s March 18 through May 14 exhibit will honor the sacred significance of the Spring Equinox with an art show of works that express the power and beauty of new beginnings, of life springing forth from the dark and the cold into warmth and light.
Submissions, open to Sonoma County artists only, will include all media. Works are limited to 5’ high and 4’ wide with a weight limit of 50 1bs. Two-dimensional works are to be framed, or with gallery wrapped edges, wired on the back for hanging. Soft sculpture size limit is 24 sq ft. This is a juried show. Accepted pieces will be listed on the OCA website within 2 days. All items are to be for sale.
Unframed prints of accepted works are welcome for our print rack. Up to four submissions per artist. Fee for first submission is $15, $10 for each additional entry. 40% gallery commission per sale. Payment of entry fees can be made by cash, check or credit card.
