Now accepting submissions for the
2022 Members Biennial exhibition
Paint Creek Center for the Arts (PCCA) is now accepting submissions for our 2022 Members Biennial exhibition, scheduled to open August 20, 2022, 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 can submit work in a broad range of themes and subject matter, so long as work is appropriate for the all-ages nature of Flagstar Strand Theatre. A short statement about the work must accompany your submission and will be displayed alongside your artwork at the theatre for the entire duration of the exhibit. Member artists creating work in the following visual mediums are encouraged to submit artwork for consideration.
- Ceramic (any)
- Digital Art (made with a computer, phone, or tablet) including animation and film
- Traditional drawing and illustration (pen and ink, charcoal, graphite, crayon, pastel, etc.)
- Fiber (any) and Leather
- Glass (stained, blown, fused, etc.)
- Jewelry (any)
- Mixed media
- Painting (any)
- Printmaking (hand manipulated by using etching, engraving, silk-screening, stone and plate lithography, linoleum block or woodcut, etc.)
Please review the schedule below before submitting your application for inclusion. PCCA will not be able to accept late applications, late work, or early pick-up of artwork due to the nature of the venue and the show.
