About the Exhibition
PAAM is closing until March 31. This includes the Museum, the office, the school, and all programs scheduled through April 17. The PAAM staff will still be reachable by email and by phone (firstname.lastname@example.org, 508-487-1750.), and we’ll continue to update our social media channels. Please read this letter from PAAM CEO Christine McCarthy for more information, and scroll down for information about Pick-Up Day.
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.
Juried exhibitions at PAAM represent a smaller cross-section of member artists who’s work has been chosen by a guest curator after being submitted. Each show reflects the aesthetic judgment and curatorial eye of invited jurors. Any member in good standing may submit their work for consideration. Except in special circumstances, Juried exhibitions do not have themes or size restrictions.
