The PCA ShoP -screening new artists

Pittsburgh Center for the Arts SHOP ARTIST SUBMISSIONS

ShopThe Shop at the Pittsburgh Center for the Arts will be screening new consignment artists to complement the existing mix represented in the Shop at PCA on Saturday April 9, 2011.

We appreciate your interest in submitting your artwork to the Shop at PCA.
Please be aware that our main focus during business hours is to represent, and promote the artwork we currently have available. PCA Shop staff will not review artwork on a walk in basis. Because the Shop receives many requests from Artists wishing to show with us, we ask that interested artists attend a screening for review. Only artists living or working within a 150-Mile radius of the Center will be considered.

A screening for new artists will be held on Saturday April 9, 2011 at Pittsburgh
Center for the Arts, 6300 Fifth Avenue. The Screening will be held in Simmons Hall,
Basement level of Marshall Building (Big Yellow House) at 6300 Fifth Avenue,
Pittsburgh, Pa 15232.

On the day of the screening, artists or artist representative will:
  1. Drop off between 10 am and 12 pm a representation (2-3 works per media) of artwork.
  2. Provide a brief Artist Statement.
  3. Supply suggested retail price range.
  4. Artists or artist representative will be required to pick up their work between 2 and 3 pm that same day.

Notification of selection results will be confidentially mailed to artists within two
weeks after the screening date.

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. Ex:
artists must be creating elements of finished design, rather than working from
purchased "blanks".

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.
