PAC accepting entries for fall show

PAWTUCKET – The Pawtucket Arts Collaborative is accepting entries for its juried fall show titled “Texture.” The deadline for entries is Saturday, Aug. 24.

In the visual arts, texture is the perceived surface quality of a work of art. It is an element of two-dimensional and three-dimensional design distinguished by its visual and physical properties. PAC is accepting mixed media, sculptures, textiles, paintings, collage and everything in between. The show will open Thursday, Sept. 12, with guest juror Rich Watrous and be a part of the Pawtucket Arts Festival.

There will be three awards: Juror Prize $500, second place $250, and $100. Prizes will be awarded at the opening on Sept. 12.

Accepted art must be dropped off on Friday, Sept. 6, from 4 to 7 p.m.; Saturday, Sept. 7, from 10 a.m. to noon. If the artist cannot drop off the work themselves, a friend or relative may do so instead.

Only digital submissions will be accepted. After submission form is completed and payment received credit card preferred; checks/money orders can be sent to Pawtucket Arts Collaborative, PO Box 966, Pawtucket, RI 02862, a link will be emailed to for uploading photos.

Checks will be accepted until Saturday, Aug. 10. After that date credit cards only will be accepted.

Max submission is two pieces.

The Submission fee for PAC members is $15 for one piece, $20 for two. The non-PAC members fee is $18 for one piece, $23 for two.
