2018 Members Biennial Exhibition

Paint Creek Center for the Arts is now accepting submissions for our 2018 Members Biennial Exhibition that will be held from May 19 – June 15, 2018.

The 2018 Members Biennial Exhibition occurs every other year, and is an all medium showcase of works from artists who have contributed to Paint Creek Center for the Arts’ (PCCA) mission to promote, encourage, and create opportunities to appreciate and participate in the arts. Both established and emerging artists are welcome and encouraged to submit applications for participation, but an active membership with PCCA is required for final consideration.

Membership with PCCA is active for 365 days, immediately from purchase, and grants discounts for class and workshop registration, early access to class registration and events, the opportunity to participate in the members biennial exhibition and more.

These documents must be completed and returned to PCCA upon the delivery of your work. If you are unable to access the documents, copies will be provided for you at PCCA.

  14. Please limit entries to your best four (4) works.

Accepted 2D artwork must be ready for display. There are alternative ways to hanging work besides custom framing. If you are unable to frame your work, consider mounting it to a sturdy art (archival) board, wood, or even stretched/primed canvas. If you are submitting a painting on canvas or panel, simply add the hanging hardware to the back. Framing is the preferred method of display as it helps protect and showcase the artwork. Please contact [email protected] if you have any questions on displaying your accepted artwork.
