The Peninsula Jewish Community Center is pleased to be hosting our fifth community art show, June 6 – August 26, 2018. We realize that many talented artists reside and create locally in our community. It is with pride and admiration that we open the Center’s gallery to showcase a wide variety of their works. We invite artists of all levels to review the eligibility requirements and application guidelines.
Don’t delay: Submissions are due Monday, April 23, 2018.

The final presenting form of two-dimensional works may not exceed 30” x 40” in either direction. Handcrafted jewelry will be displayed in locked curio cabinets. Eligible works include paintings, drawings, photography, mixed media, tapestry/wall hangings, and handcrafted jewelry.
A non-refundable administrative fee of $10 must accompany application. You will be asked to make your payment electronically at the time of your submission. If you are using the paper application form make checks payable to the PJCC. Only one application form allowed per artist. The fee goes directly towards printing costs associated with this show.

Entrants in the Handcrafted Jewelry category are permitted to include a second image of the work to demonstrate an alternate view of the piece.

Entries accepted for the show will be at the discretion of the PJCC Community Art Show Selection Committee, who will have complete discretion as to the number of works to be exhibited and may eliminate any entry at any stage in the judging process. Any accepted works delivered that differ from submitted images will be disqualified.
It is suggested that artists carry their own insurance. Every reasonable care will be taken in handling work, but no responsibility will be assumed by the PJCC for any loss or damage incurred in transit. Items will be insured for 80% of the dollar value written on entry form by the PJCC under its “all-risk” wall-to-wall policy. Submission of work(s) constitutes agreement to terms and conditions in this application.
