3rd Annual Member & Student Exhibition

PCA&M is excited to present our 3rd Annual Member & Student Exhibition!

Help us celebrate you! We want to showcase the incredible level of talented and
creative people that come through our doors, make artwork in our studios and
support PCA&M by being a part of our community.

This exhibition opportunity is open to all people (18 and up) that have a current
membership with PCA&M (associate, family, senior, student, or access) and
any person who has been a recent student (2020 until now). Members should be in
good standing and students should state what their most recent class or workshop
was that they took with us.

We want to see your artwork!
Painting, drawing, ceramics, prints, jewelry/metals, photography, digital illustration,
fiber arts, mixed media; we are interested in seeing it all!

We want to show off as much talent as possible, and at least one piece of all submitted work from each artist will be chosen for the show.

Please submit up to 3 images for consideration, listing the title, materials, year it was made, size, and price for each piece in the “Tell Us About Your Work” box.

All artwork should be ready for installation upon arrival, i.e. wired etc.

The deadline to apply is February 19th

Frequently Asked Questions:

Does my artwork have to be made during a class or during studio access?

Not at all! Feel free to submit any piece whether you made it at PCA&M, at home, or even another studio.

I haven’t made anything new recently, can I submit an older piece?

We can’t resist a good classic! You can submit any piece as long as it was made from 2020 until now.

Does my work have to be for sale in the exhibition?

Only if you want it to be! We know you can’t always put a price on a piece, and we’re happy just to have the opportunity to exhibit your work.

I haven’t taken a class in a couple years, can I still submit my work?

We’re happy to accept work from any student who’s taken a class with us as far back as 2020.

Can I submit for the show if I just became a member?

Absolutely! This exhibition is open to all members whose membership is currently up to date.

How can I become a member?

You canĀ sign up for a membership online.

I’d like to submit, but how do I know if my work is good enough to be shown?

Applying for shows can sometimes be intimidating, but we think all work is great in its own special ways! You can submit up to three of your favorite pieces, and our guest curator will be sure to choose a great one for the show! We’ll accept at least one piece from every artist.

Guest Curator?

We wanted to make this year’s exhibition a stronger resource for our artists, and have asked our friend Judy Barie to help curate the exhibition! Not only will Judy be selecting the work for the exhibition, but will be available to offer feedback on the work during walkthroughs of the exhibition.
