Online Exhibition Presented by SFAA

Onward is how we move forward from the past. Onward is how we push past our limits. In the wake of SFAI's closure we've all had to consider how we move onward and forward. We've also had to move onward from the feelings , sickness, and strife during this unprecedented pandemic and figure out what's in store for our future. Some have pivoted to new vocations, friendships, and ways of being. Others have stagnated and feel lost unable to move forward.

Deadline for submissions: NOVEMBER 14, 2022

We are asking artists to consider what onward means to them and are seeking submissions for an online exhibition of SFAI family.
