About the Exhibition

Each year PAAM mounts upwards of 6 members’ open and juried exhibitions in which participants display their work alongside some of America’s most noteworthy artists.

Members’ Exhibitions at PAAM represent the work of contemporary artist-members of the Provincetown Art Association and Museum. Many of these artists live on Cape Cod either full-time or for part of the year. While the work varies greatly in media and approach, each artist-member joins a long roster of distinguished artists who have studied, taught, and exhibited at PAAM over the past 100 years. There is no submission fee for members’ exhibitions, but membership must be up to date.


Drop-Off Day is Tuesday, October 22 from 12-4pm. Early drop-offs are welcome the week prior to Drop-Off Day during Museum hours only (Thursday-Sunday, 12-5pm). Membership must be valid through December, 2019, anyone is welcome to join or renew when dropping off work. Jury results will be announced by Thursday, October 24, work not selected for the exhibition must be picked up the following week during Museum hours. Pick-Up Day for selected work is Tuesday, December 3 from 12-4pm.
