Interested in submitting your work for the next exhibit?

In the fall, SPAC will announce the new theme and begin accepting submissions in the forms of visual art, literary art, and the performing arts for the next FOYA Online Gallery exhibition.

We encourage submissions from high school students as well as performing ensembles! Teachers and directors may submit on behalf of their students or ensembles.


All submissions are considered and selected based on the following criteria:

  • Originality and emergence of a personal vision or point of view

  • Demonstrated skill and/or technique

  • Interpretation and clarity of the festival theme

  • Overall impression and/or impact of the piece
