PAC has an amazing group of talented and loyal members and we want to support them! This year the works are any size, any medium--all with a starting price of $200 or below. At the opening on Thursday November 7th, 15 works of art were sold but there's plenty more to see! If you missed the opening, you can see them in our gallery or online at our online store at this link:

The Mill Gallery will be open for this show on Thursdays from 5:30-7:30pm and on Saturdays/Sundays from 1:00-5:00pm. Please check our Facebook page for changes to our open hours.  

PAC Gallery is located at 560 Mineral Spring Avenue in Pawtucket. Our main entrance is at the front of the building facing the street in between Mixed Magic Theater and Miss Lorraine Diner (which hopefully will be open by Thanksgiving). Parking is limited at this entrance, but there is access to a ramp for persons with difficulty with stairs. For all others, we recommend parking along the side of the building facing Save A Lot grocery store which has a sculpture garden in the back. There is a side entrance with a PAC sign. Go up one flight of stairs and take a left on the 1st floor, we are at the end of the hall and there will be signs. 

*PAC will also be participating in the Craft and Kitsch show again on December 7th-8th from 10:00am-4:00pm each day, and all work will be for sale right off the walls there too!. To find out more about Craft and Kitsch, visit

Escape from the Holidays at PAC's Mill Gallery

Collage Workshop

December 15th from 1:00-4:00pm

PAC member Lin Collette will be leading a collage art workshop for members and non-members at PAC's Mill Gallery, First Floor, 560 Mineral Spring Avenue in Pawtucket. This is not a formal teaching workshop but, rather, a chance to explore working with paper and other materials to create a new work of art. Materials will be provided but you are welcome to bring in things they'd like to work with. If you have tools you prefer to use (such as Exacto knives, cutting boards, scissors, glue, etc), do bring them with you.

The workshop is free and open to members and non-members, but a $5 donation towards materials would be greatly appreciated.


The Pawtucket Arts Collaborative is delighted to announce the winners of prizes for their work in the Textures juried exhibition. Prize winners were chosen by juror Rich Watrous and awarded at the Textures opening on September 12th.

First prize was awarded to Melanie Medeiros for her work "Cherub/Noel".  Susan Garland received Second Prize for her work "I Protect Her."


Beth Johnston won the Third Prize with her work "As Above So Below"

Featuring great music by Paul Williams and fabulous refreshments (that went fast) by Lisa Champagne Morgan and friends, a great time was had by all at the Opening Reception.

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.
