Do you want to curate an exhibition?

PVA exhibitions must include at least 5 individual artists, and have included as many as 65 artists. Submissions are chosen for excellence, uniqueness and relevance to our mission of bringing the community together through the arts. The gallery schedule is often established 2 years in advance. However, proposals are reviewed at any time. The Gallery Committee considers submitted proposals at its monthly meetings.
Curators of accepted shows are expected to attend Gallery Committee meetings and will be assigned a mentor(s) to assist them.
