Occurring every other year, the Members Biennial exhibit aims to showcase artwork from artists who have contributed to, and shown support for, Paint Creek Center for the Arts’ mission through annual membership.
There is was no set theme for the 2022 Members Biennial, allowing Member artists to submit work in a broad range of themes and subject matter. The exhibit was held off-site at Flagstar Strand Theatre (Pontiac) and was open to the public August 18 through October 29, 2022.
An opening reception was held at the Flagstar Strand Theatre on August 18th from 6-9pm, where cash prizes and ribbons were presented for First, Second and Third place art pieces, as chosen by PCCA’s exhibit committee members. Flagstar Strand Theatre presented a separate award for their bar and restaurant for their staff pick. A closing reception, celebrating PCCA’s 40th anniversary, was scheduled for October 29th, but was cancelled due to low ticket sales.
