ABOUT THE EXHIBITION

On view October 8-November 28, 2021

Each year PAAM mounts upwards of 6 members’ open and juried exhibitions in which participants display their work alongside some of America’s most noteworthy artists. Members’ Exhibitions at PAAM represent the work of our contemporary artist-members. 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. There is no submission fee for members’ exhibitions, but membership must be up to date.

Juried exhibitions at PAAM represent a smaller cross-section of member artists who’s work has been chosen by a guest curator after being submitted. Each show reflects the aesthetic judgment and curatorial eye of invited jurors. Any member in good standing may submit their work for consideration. Except in special circumstances, Juried exhibitions do not have themes or size restrictions.

JURORS’ STATEMENT

The ultimate objective for us was to create an interesting art exhibition for the PAAM viewers—one that would present them with unique works of art showing as many different genres and varied media as possible.

After independently studying all the entries we jointly began selecting works that convey the unexpected, the thought-provoking, the edgy and yes, the joyful.

Through color, composition, mark-making, material or subject matter, certain pieces began to create a dialog, which is why you will notice “pairings” or “groupings” in this exhibit. Simultaneously, we focused on the overall flow of the exhibition. Eventually, the show presented itself in its entirety.

We invite you to look closely and contemplate each work of art. There are many ways one can view this show. For example, it can be seen in context of current world events but also in context of Provincetown’s rich art history. No matter which messages and meaning may emerge for you, we hope you will find ways to “connect the dots” to further your thoughts.
