PCA Shop Artist Submissions
The Shop at the Pittsburgh Center for the Arts will be screening artwork by new consignment artists to complement the existing mix of work currently represented. Because the Shop receives many requests from those who wish to show with us, we ask that interested artists submit to our digital screening for review. As our main focus during business hours is to represent and promote the artwork we currently have available, please be aware that PCA Shop staff will not review artwork on a walk-in basis. Artists living or working within a 150-mile radius of the Center are invited to submit for consideration. We appreciate your interest in submitting your artwork to the Shop at PCA!
The Shop at Pittsburgh Center for the Arts is a consignment gallery. Current Members of Pittsburgh Filmmakers/Pittsburgh Center for the Arts are eligible for 55% artist/45% PCA commission split of the retail sales price; Non-Members receive a 50% artist/50% PCA commission split.
Submissions must be post marked by Friday April 25, 2014.
Quality of work as well as the diversity of the work in comparison to existing inventory will drive the screening committee’s decisions. We are particularly interested in the artists overall “hand” in the creation of the finished work (i.e. artists must be creating elements of finished design, as opposed to decorating or embellishing purchased readymade objects).
Notification of selection results will be mailed by May 9, 2014.
Additional work or information may be requested for review.
