Members’ Open: Freedom

March 6 - May 3, 2020

About the Exhibition

Pick-Up for this exhibition will be held when it’s safe to do so. If you need or want your piece for whatever reason, just get in touch with Lesley and she’ll develop a plan with you: PAAM is closed until further notice. This includes the Museum, the office, the school, and all programs. The PAAM staff will still be reachable by email (, and we’ll continue to update our social media channels. Please read this letter from PAAM CEO Christine McCarthy for more information.

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.


All members in good standing are invited to submit to this open exhibition. The theme for this open exhibition is “freedom,” and is open to your interpretation. Work must not exceed 24” in any direction (including the frame), and must arrive dry and equipped with a hanging device. All types of media welcome. 1 submission/person. There is no submission fee for members’ exhibitions.

Drop-Off Day is Tuesday, March 3 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 May, 2020, anyone is welcome to join or renew when dropping off work. Pick-Up Day is Tuesday, May 5 from 12-4pm.
