Call for Art – 13th Members’ Annual Exhibition
The Place Where we Live
Click these links to pre-fill out the intake forms:
This year’s member show asks that you reflect on the theme A Sense of Place: belonging, culture, livelihood, attachment, change, constancy. Find the inspiration that kindles the fire of your expression. City streets, back roads, countryside, ocean, or the less tangible impressions of your own experience and recollection. Abstract, representational, expressionist, impressionist… all manner of interpretation is acceptable.
We do ask that work be current and not previously exhibited at PAC.
When: November 15 – January 3, 2014
Where: Petaluma Arts Center, 230 Lakeville Street
Saturday, November 16, 4:00-7:00

Deadline to submit: Wednesday, October 30, 2013
Please submit your work sooner rather than later. The later we hear from you, the more difficult it is to plan the show!!!
Theme: LANDSCAPES — See criteria below.

Works must be appropriate for a hospital venue. Please, no nudes or violent images. Keep in mind that we are encouraging healing in our community.
All artwork on paper MUST be under glass, framed appropriately.

Accepted work must be on view for the duration of the exhibit. (Arrangements will be made if a buyer is unable to wait for the closing date of the show.)

Whether young or old, professional or doodler, pick up a picket from Petaluma Arts Center for a minimum donation of $5.00 or $20 for a business to advertise.
You have probably seen the cyclone fence at the edge of the Depot parking lot. It’s going to be here for a while, as staging area for the new SMART train. You can help make that fence into a work of art!
Paint a fence picket and see it up on our cyclone fence along with Jackie Yurth’s colorful recycled vinyl flowers. Pickets are lightly sanded and primed on one side. Paint them at home, bring them back, and we will add them to our very own ART FENCE. Board member Tracy Gentry, her son Alex and Jackie launched the Fence Project at the Rivertown Revival and it is a huge hit.
