Members’ Juried: Spring
On View May 9 2016 – Jun 26 2016
Provincetown Art Association and Museum
In 1914, a group of visionary artists and local townspeople came together to form the Provincetown Art Association and Museum. This group recognized the need for an established arts institution on the Outer Cape. Today, PAAM continues to present juried exhibitions of artist-members’ works. Each show reflects the aesthetic judgment and curatorial eye of invited jurors.
Members’ Exhibitions at PAAM represent the work of contemporary artist-members of the Provincetown Art Association and Museum. Many of these artists live on Cape Cod either full-time or for part of the year. While the work varies greatly in media and approach, each artist-member joins a long roster of distinguished artists who have studied, taught, and exhibited at PAAM over the past 100 years.
