2022 Student & Faculty Exhibition

Now accepting submissions for the
2022 Student & Faculty exhibition

Paint Creek Center for the Arts (PCCA) is now accepting submissions for our 2022 Student & Faculty exhibition, scheduled to open September 24, 2022, in the Gallery at Paint Creek Center for the Arts.

Held each year, the Student & Faculty exhibition highlights the work of our current student body and teaching faculty.

There is no set theme for the Student & Faculty exhibition- our goal is to showcase the progress and dedication to creative learning of our Art Education department. Artists may submit work in a broad range of themes and subject matter, so long as work is appropriate for the all-ages nature of PCCA’s gallery space.  So long as the artwork was made as part of PCCA’s educational programming, faculty and student artists creating work in the following visual mediums are encouraged to submit artwork for consideration.

Accepted mediums:

  • Ceramic (functional, non-functional)
  • Digital Art (made with a computer, phone, or tablet)
  • Traditional drawing and illustration (pen and ink, charcoal, graphite, crayon, pastel, etc.)
  • Fiber (any)
  • Mixed media
  • Painting (any)
  • Photography
  • Printmaking (hand manipulated by using etching, engraving, silk-screening, stone and plate lithography, linoleum block or woodcut, etc.)

Submission Requirements

  • Applying artist must be an active faculty member of Paint Creek Center for the Arts, or a PCCA student enrolled in one or more of the following terms: Summer 2021, Fall 2021, Winter 2022, Spring 2022, Summer 2022.
  • Artwork was made as part of a PCCA educational course. Please do not submit work that was not predominantly made as part of your class.
  • Artwork is not more than 2 years old (finished in 2021 or 2022 only).
  • No more than 3 works to be submitted for consideration per artist/group. Image files should be labeled “Last Name_Title of Work” to avoid confusing the jurors
  • Work must be ready to display! If submitting work that needs to be framed or mounted for proper display at time of exhibition, please be sure this will be possible before the drop-off date!

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
