Accepted  artwork must be ready for display. There are alternative ways to hang 2D artwork 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 long term. Please contact [email protected] if you have any questions on displaying your accepted artwork.


Submissions should be emailed to [email protected] and must include the following:

  • Your/Artist Name
  • FOR EACH PIECE SUBMITTED: Title of work, medium, and dimensions (if framed, please include the final framed size!)
  • Year work was created
  • Instructors Name/Class work was predominantly created in.
  • Retail Price (insurance value if Not for Sale. If Not for Sale, please note this!)

Artwork should be included as an attachment to the email, and each file should be titled with your last name and the name of the work to avoid any confusion when work is sent on for jury.

We can not accept any work that is brought into PCCA for consideration.
