PNWS has opened the application process for “Emergence,” our first national, juried, virtual exhibit. Our Juror is Richard Speer, art critic, author, and curator. Awards include: $500 Best of Show, $200 First Place, $100 Second Place plus several Honorable Mentions.

Deadline: August 21st, 2021

The theme, “Emergence” is intentionally vague to encourage a broad range of interpretations by artists in any physical 3-dimensional medium.
