PAC is joining with many other arts organizations to temporarily close our doors while the COVID-19 crisis continues. This means that any workshops that have been scheduled are canceled until further notice and that there are no visiting hours.
We feel that, in the spirit of helping to prevent transmission of the virus, it's the right thing to do.
We will let you know when we're back in business. In the meantime, please follow our Facebook page at www.facebook.com/pawtucketartscollaborative and Instagram at www.instagram.com/pawtucketartscollaborative for announcements. Also you may email email@example.com with any questions.
We will continue to keep the 2020 Pawtucket Foundation show on our walls in the hopes that we will be able to reopen soon and allow people to come in and view this amazing show.
We hope we will be back soon. In the meantime, please take care of yourselves and thank you for your patience.

CALL TO ARTISTS
Artwork Created During Quarantine
Calling all PAC Members New and Old to participate in our fall 2020 show PANDEMONIUM
We want to see what our fabulous art community has been making while staying in. This is 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 you are on that scale (and it can change day to day!) we want to see what you’ve MADE during this time.
OPEN TO ARTISTS in all media 2-D and 3-D (*with some restrictions, visit our prospectus page here for size limitations, hanging instructions etc.) Artists must be current PAC Members with paid up dues at the time of art drop-off. Artwork must have been made during the quarantine. If possible, please include a sentence or two writeup summing up your creative quarantine experience to be displayed with your work.
ARTWORK must be dropped off at the PAC Gallery Friday 9/18/20 4-7 and Sat 9/19/20 10-12 with art installation on Saturday 9/19/20 afternoon. We ask artists to include with their drop off- 2 copies of their artist statement and any installation instructions. We also encourage artists with specific hanging instructions to attend the install. Gallery located at 560 Mineral Spring Ave. on the first floor between the Miss Lorraine Diner and Mixed Magic Theater.
PANDEMONIUM OPENS Thursday 9/24/20 from 5:30-7:30 with live music.
Show runs through Thursday November 12th, 2020.
Cash prizes will be awarded $500 for 1st place, $250 for 2nd, and $100 for third. Prizes are selected by the PAC Gallery Committee.
(*In the event of additional quarantine measures in the fall, PAC will host PANDEMONIUM as an online show. Info will be provided in late summer/early September if that happens)
