Call for Artists

2018 PNA Member & Volunteer Show

Submission deadline is June 3, 2018

Members, volunteers and staff of the Phinney Neighborhood Association are invited to apply to the 2018 PNA Member and Volunteer Art Show. Jurors from the local community will select art to be displayed in the Phinney Center Gallery from July 11 – August 10, 2018.

We anticipate showing work from 20-30 artists (artists may submit up to three works).

There will be a People’s Choice Award selected by popular vote during the show.  The winning artist will receive a free year of PNA Membership and be featured in the next edition of The Review, the PNA’s quarterly community newspaper, as well as the PNA’s website and the PNA Facebook page.

The Phinney Center Gallery supports local emerging artists and is located in the historic Phinney Center in Seattle, Washington. Our gallery shows are advertised to 19,000 local community members and thousands of people visit the Phinney Center each month.

 

Eligibility

PNA members, volunteers and staff are invited to submit. Submitted works must not been shown previously in the Phinney Center Gallery.  Pieces may not be larger than 3 feet 6 inches wide and/or 6 feet tall and must weigh less than 15 pounds. We can only accept media that will hang easily, given the constraints of our gallery.

While the PNA appreciates artistic expression in all its forms, as a public space that caters to kids of all ages, we are unable to display any artworks depicting naked genitalia or breasts.
