2022 Members Biennial Exhibition

2022 Members Biennial exhibition

Paint Creek Center for the Arts (PCCA) is happy to announce the return of the Members Biennial exhibition. Join us for the Opening Reception on August 18, 2022, from 6-9pm at Flagstar Strand Theatre.

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 no set theme for the 2022 Members Biennial, meaning member artists were able submit work in a broad range of themes and subject matter, so long as it served the all-ages nature of Flagstar Strand Theatre.

New This Year

  • PCCA students and faculty members should avoid submitting the same artwork for both our Student & Faculty Exhibition and our Members Biennial as the shows will overlap one another
  • The gallery space at the Flagstar Strand Theatre occupies nearly the entire second floor of the building, leaving room for more work to be accepted than typically allowed at the gallery at PCCA
  • Opening AND closing receptions to be held at Strand Theatre. (Opening: August 18, 2022. Closing: October 29, 2022. Times to be announced.)
  • Juried by Exhibition Committee and Flagstar Strand Theatre representative(s)
  • 1st, 2nd, and 3rd cash prizes to be announced following opening reception. Award ribbons will be on public display next to artwork throughout the duration of the exhibit
  • All artwork accepted into the exhibit will be included in a 2022 Members Biennial catalog, with  copies available for pre-order and order after the opening reception. Final details of the catalog will be released mid-to-late July.
