Members’ Juried

On view October 8-November 28, 2021 | Jurors: Joerg Dressler and Mike Wright

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 our contemporary artist-members. 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.



Artwork Receipts may be submitted online in advance of Drop-Off, or if shipping work. See below.

Any member in good standing is invited to submit their work for consideration. We are holding two Drop-Off Days: Monday, October 4, 11am-2pm and Tuesday, October 5, 11am-2pm (these are also the Pick-Up Days for unsold 12x12s). An email will be sent announcing the included artists on Thursday, October 7. Works not chosen must be picked up during Museum hours (open daily, except Tuesdays, 11am-5pm) by Monday, October 11.

For this exhibition, work must be dry and equipped with a hanging device. There is no size restriction. One submission/person.

Membership must be valid through the duration of the exhibition (November, 2021). Anyone can join or renew at any time, and dropping off goes faster if you renew your membership in advance.


Members may ship their work to PAAM, but it must be received on or before the drop-off day. Works that arrive late will not be considered for the exhibition. Shipping work back to the artist after the exhibition will cost the artist a $15 handling fee plus shipping costs. PAAM cannot ascertain the shipping costs prior to packaging and weighing the artwork for return. Therefore, when submitting return shipping information, please include one of the following:

  • A prepaid FedEx, UPS, or USPS return shipping label (or appropriate postage in stamps) and $15 handling fee (either a $15 check or a credit card number, expiration date, and CVV code)
  • A blank check to cover shipping and handling costs
  • Credit card information to cover shipping and handling costs
