Every artist has some form of sketchbook, whether it be sticky notes on a wall, or notes on your phone. Sometimes when creating artwork, the process becomes a piece of art itself. Sketchbook is an exhibition show that will highlight the ideas and thought process behind your art. Send us your sketches, your notes, your discarded ideas, even your whole sketchbook! Show us how you create!

(This exhibit is in our upstairs Theater Gallery.)

The exhibit is open to the public December 3 - 18 with an opening reception Friday, December 3 from 7-10pm.

Submissions must be received by Monday, November 22nd, 2021 at midnight. No late submissions will be accepted. Artists will be notified of their acceptance by email. Please note that the audience will have the opportunity to interact with these sketches. So if you don’t want someone to touch your artwork, please let us know.

Please complete the following form to submit.

Complete one form per piece of artwork - do not put multiple pieces on the same form, unless they are part of a series and are meant to be displayed as one artwork. Submissions will be limited to 3 works or less, including sets or triptychs.

There is a $5 submission fee required for your submission. Side Street Studio Arts Members are exempt from the submission fee. Interested in becoming a SSSA member? More info available here:

SSSA takes no commission on art sales!
