Want to be the Artist of the Month?



Founded in 1998, the PCA (Parish Center for the Arts) is a private, non-profit arts center whose mission is to promote and support visual and performing arts in Westford and surrounding communities.  Throughout the school year, the PCA hosts a variety of concerts, dances, theatre productions, classes and workshops.  Each month, the walls feature a different artist (or group of artists) whose work is seen during Sunday gallery hours (noon – 2 p.m.) and whenever an event, either public or private, is taking place.

The PCA Gallery invites artists to submit work for consideration for solo and group exhibitions.  All media will be considered, however, 3D work is not accepted due to space constraints.  If your proposal is accepted, you will display your work for one month.  Only original work will be considered for display and at least 50% of the work must be for sale.

The PCA Gallery operates like a cooperative gallery where the PCA provides the space and guidance to the artist for making a successful show but the artist is responsible for publicity, hanging, hosting a reception (if desired) and gallery sitting every Sunday.  The artist retains 80% of all sales.

 To be considered:

  1. Submit 8-10 images on CD or send via email (.jpg files).  For each image include the title, dimensions and media.
  2. Include a brief artist biography including the artist address, email and phone number.  The biography may include things such as education credentials, past shows, awards, etc.  If you’d like your submission packet returned, provide a stamped, self-addressed envelope.
  3. CDs should be mailed to:  PCA, PO Box 411, Westford, MA 01886.
  4. Email submissions should be sent to pca@westford.org

Each year, January through March, the PCA Gallery Committee accepts art submissions for the following season (September through June). Artists are notified by mid-May of the status of their application.
