The Studios of Key West EXCHANGE Call for Work


Saturday, August 18 - Sunday, September 14, 2018

Side Street Studio Arts in Elgin, Illinois, with support from The Studios of Key West in Florida, are embarking on our 3rd EXCHANGE art-swap program. This collaboration will allow artists' work to travel and reach audiences in two exciting arts markets, create money-making and networking opportunities for artists, and will start to bridge the distance among working artists in the United States.

We are looking for both performing and visual artists working in all mediums.

Artists are welcome to submit work for consideration for exhibition even if they can't travel to either of the locations.

Those artists interested in traveling must be available to spend a minimum of 4 days on site at either the Illinois or Florida locations or both. Traveling artists must be interested in and open to a collaborative creative process, as they will be engaging in creating work on site with other EXCHANGE visual and performing artists. Additionally, special consideration will be given to artists who submit a workshop/demonstration/discussion proposal with their work.

Artists must be Illinois or Florida based.

$25 Submission Fee Required (one-time fee)/$15 Submission Fee for SSSA Members

Application info below:


This exhibit will be juried. Submissions must be received by May 19, 2018. No late submissions will be accepted. Once we receive your submission, we will send you an invoice for the submission fee. If we do not receive your submission fee, your work will not be considered. Submission fees help offset the staff, marketing, travel, install, etc. costs of EXCHANGE.
