WINTER MEMBER SHOW

runs Thursday 1/14/21 thru 2/25/21


This year has been unexpected to say the least. Political upheaval, economic strain, and a relentless pandemic have been pushing people to their breaking point. PAC knows that art-making and the art community can be a healing salve during these hard times. PAC artists responded to the call; four won prizes of: $500 1st prize; $250 2nd prize; $100 3rd prize and $100 PAC Prize.

PAC Members’ Show: WINTER from the old Germanic meaning ‘The time of water’. Other notable elements of the coldest season: Winter Equinox aka the shortest day of the year, the Vernal Equinox where the day and night are equal in length. Cold and darkness. Rest and renewal. It’s a season of dormancy, of hibernation. Aurora Borealis. Yuletide greetings. The frozen worlds of Norse mythology. Yeti. Krampus. Migration. Hanukkah. Persephone and Hades. Scandanavian Hygge and coziness. Death and Rebirth. The Japanese snow ghost Yuki-onna. Gingerbread and Evergreens. Blizzards and ice skating. Snow days! The list goes on and on.

ABOUT THE JUROR- Yarrow Thorne Founder & Executive Director, The Avenue Concept inc

https://theavenueconcept.org/

Restorative – Adaptability – Deliberative – Self-Assurance – Responsibility

Founder and Executive Director Yarrow Thorne developed his passion for art and design in urban spaces growing up in a design-based family in Northampton, Massachusetts. He earned his Bachelor of Fine Arts from Rhode Island School of Design (RISD), and for the last ten years has been learning how to support public art programming in the urban environment. While a student, Yarrow established RISD’s first public art policy to create revolving walls for artists to showcase their work.

In 2012, he was selected to receive one of twenty SEED Grants from the Robert Rauschenberg Foundation, which he used to found The Avenue Concept, a platform for a scalable and sustainable public art programming in Providence, Rhode Island. Yarrow’s vision for The Avenue Concept is a private organization that leverages support for public art projects to get off the ground, to jump-start excitement and recognition for art and its value in Providence and everyday life.

Yarrow believes his dyslexia is his greatest asset because through it he has developed his ability to work outside the box in many venues, particularly in finding creative solutions to urban challenges using public art. Yarrow has installed over 150 pieces of public art since 2012.
