Join PAC Now to Take Advantage of all that PAC has to Offer


The Pawtucket Arts Collaborative will not be running a Holiday Member Show this year but, rather, will have a Winter themed member exhibition beginning in mid-January and running through February. More details will be posted soon. In the meantime, do take care of yourself.

We will be keeping the Pandemonium show online for the time being.

The Pandemonium Has Started!

Pandemonium opens on Thursday September 24th with a virtual exhibition that lasts through November 12th. Cash prizes will be awarded for First, Second and Third Place, as chosen by Joan Hausrath, with two additional Honorable Mentions chosen by the public.

The show focuses on the work that PAC members have been making since the Covid-19 pandemic began in the U.S.  This has been an historical, unprecedented moment in time where the entire world has had to hold its breath, hide away, and wait. For some this has been disastrous, for others merely a challenge, for some a hindrance, and still others a welcome respite from the rigors of daily life. Wherever PAC members are on that scale (and it can change day to day!), this is a chance to see creativity at work.

Participating artists are: Bradley Bailey, Robin Beckwith, Daniel Borden, Mary Belden Brown, Peter Campbell, Barbara Canning, Elaine Carreiro, Mary Casale, Julius Cavira, Cathy Chin, Kate Chute, Susan Clarke, Lin Collette, Claudia Crevier, Angel Dean, Philip Derby, Cynthia DiDonato, Mason Drowne, Melanie Ducharme, Devin Dugan, Robert Easton, Maureen Eckert, Eran Fraenkel, Jan Gendron, Ann-Marie Gillett, Erik Giorgi, Susan Graseck, Jean Green, Marguerite De Lucia Hall, Matthew Hall, Carol Hansen, Barbara Harris, Wendy Ingram, Bonnie Jaffe, Marc Jaffe, Thomas Jamison, Carolyn Hagy Kent, Jennifer Kiluk, Frank Lally, Wendy LeBlanc, George Lowell, Michael M. Luzzi, Christina Machinski, Tim McCarthy, Melanie dai Medeiros, Joanne Morrissey, Sara Nugent, Blair Oliver, Sophia Paliotti, Elvira Para, Susan Potter, Mimo Gordon Riley, Betsy Ritz, Frank Robertson, Joan Rollins, Mia Rollins, Harold Roth, Ann Rozhon, David Schiffer, Sally Schuman, Beverly Silva, Gretchen Dow Simpson, Robert Snowden, Nichole Speciale, Susan Starkweather, Erin Starr, Thomas J. Terceira, Ann Kelsey Thacher, Nancy Thepmanivong, Elinor Thompson, Nancy Turbitt, Jennifer Turner, Amy Webb, Clayton Westland, Angela Wimmer and Anahid Ypres.

There are links to each page of the exhibition at the top and bottom for easier navigation. 

Most of the work is for sale in our online shop. You can find the store here at:

As mentioned, our juror is Joan Hausrath who holds an MFA in Printmaking from Bowling Green (OH) State University and an MA in the History of Art from Ohio State University. After more than 30 years of teaching, Hausrath retired from the Art Department of Bridgewater State University in Massachusetts where she taught printmaking, design and art history. She now maintains a studio in Pawtucket, RI where she practices non-toxic printmaking.

Hausrath has curated numerous exhibitions for the Fuller Craft Museum, Brockton, MA; the Anderson Gallery, at Bridgewater State University; and Gallery 175 in Pawtucket.  She regularly serves as a juror for art organizations including the National Scholastic Art Competition and the Fulbright Hays Fellowship awarded in conjunction with the United Nations.

    Art by Lin Collette

    The Pawtucket Arts Collaborative is dedicated to supporting, promoting and developing the highest level of the arts for the community and its artists. We do this by creating awareness, education and involvement through our members.


    On October 25, 2000, 25 artists led by Pat Zacks met at the Slater Mill for the first time to establish goals, bylaws, membership dues, a mission statement, a logo, and a web site and formed Pawtucket Arts Collaborative. To read more about PAC's history, year by year, click here.
