ACA property owner and major supporter, PlaneWave Instruments is the leading global designer and manufacturer of high-end research telescopes. Their equipment is used by governments, research institutions, and for high-end amateur applications. The company owners are committed to the community and to the arts, and are pleased to host the ACA on their campus.

In honor of this partnership, you are invited to enter “Celestial Bodies,” a call for art depicting the universe!
The exhibition runs Mon April 12-Fri May 21 in ACA’s 1100 sq. ft Gallery.


Exhibition Description

Entries may interpret the theme broadly or idiosyncratically and in any visual art style. Your interpretation might be serious, ironic, or humorous. You could represent phenomena in deep space or depict astronomical or astrophysical theories or instruments, real or imagined. But you might also explore bodies or forms from spiritual texts, myths, folk tales, history, literature, or dreams--as well as the places they reside. You could take a more corporeal turn and muse on what makes human bodies heavenly, or what not. 


Eligibility and Media

Artists from MI, OH, and IN are invited to submit up to 3 pieces completed within the last three years. Use any medium or combination of media to make original works. This could include editioned work but does not include giclee or digital prints of works that exist in total in other media (e.g., no digital prints of your paintings).

The ACA gallery is not equipped for projection, video, or time-based media, but if you are able to provide all needed equipment, they may be considered. Works previously exhibited in the ACA Gallery are not eligible.


Size and Weight Limitations

Work must pass easily through a 33" wide x 81" tall doorway. Work must not exceed 200 pounds. If installation of accepted work is complicated or requires special tools, the artist may be required to install it.


All work, unless indicated as not for sale (NFS) will be available for sale during the exhibition. The ACA will retain 20% of the sales price on all art sold during the exhibition.


Entry Fee

$30 for up to THREE entries

There is no application fee for ACA members.
