What is space? A free area or expanse; the dimensions of height, depth, and width within which all things exist and move. A parking space. Personal space. Outer space. Inner space. Space around us and within us. Limited. Infinite. The final frontier. What does space say to you?

WiVLA members are invited to find a partner with whom to collaborate for a new show: S P A C E. A collaboration is a partnership between members from two or more different avenues of creativity – one literary artist and one visual artist, for example. They discuss the theme of the collaboration show and determine what direction they as a partnership want to take their ideas. They then both create, each in her own creative avenue, and the work is presented together.

  • 2D artwork: Including photography, watercolor, oil, or acrylic painting; drawing; pastels; mixed media; any other 2D work that represents or reflects the theme “S P A C E”
  • 3D artwork: Including ceramics, jewelry, sculpture, handmade books, assemblage, or any other 3D work that represents or reflects the theme “S P A C E”
  • Literary work: Poetry, personal essay, memoir, nonfiction, flash fiction, play script; any written work that represents or reflects the theme “S P A C E”
  • Performance: Song, dance, theatrical performance, five-minute maximum length
