Call for Art

PHINNEY CENTER GALLERY

PNA Member, Volunteer, & Staff Show

Special Optional Theme: “Influence”

Submission deadline is August 14, 2020

Each year we invite PNA members, volunteers, and current and former staff to share their talent and creativity with the community.  This year we are encouraging artists to submit work for a special themed section in the show called Influence.  How can art influence the way we think and act as individuals and as a society? We want to hear from you through your art and help us understand how artists can make and create change in the world today.  “Art is the most effective mode of communications that exists.” John Dewey
