The Parish Center for the Arts invites artists of all ages and skill levels to participate in the 2015 Westford Regional Art Event (WRAE).   WRAE is a non-profit, volunteer-driven program with a passion and purpose to provide an annual event that showcases emerging and established artists within our immediate and surrounding communities.  Our goal is to encourage individuals of all ages to take part in, and share, their personal artistic expression through an open forum.

Then, celebrate with us! Bring your family and friends, and join us for a Gala Reception and Awards:

     Adults & Young Adults – Friday, March 20th, 7:00-9:00 PM
     Children – Saturday, March 21, 1:00- 3:00 PM.

 

 

 

Online registration is required.  Registration will be open from February 28th – March 14th.  

Artwork drop-off is Sunday, March 15th, 5:00 PM-7:30 PM and Monday, March 16th, 8:00 AM-11:00 AM at the PCA, 10 Lincoln St. Westford, MA.

Art will be judged in 3 categories:  Adults, Young Adults (Grade 9- Age 21), and Children (Grades K-2, 3-5 & 6-8).   Please note that adult professional and adult amateur artwork is judged together in their respective media.

The PCA is a private, non-profit arts center located on the town common in Westford, MA.

A volunteer-run organization, we offer a variety of arts performances including theatre, comedy, concerts, musical performances and dance performances, as well as workshops and special events, art shows, and Open Mic nights. We also feature an Artist of the Month in our gallery from September through June.  The center has a capacity of approximately 125 people.

Built in 1829, our historic space is a charming and intimate gathering place to celebrate the arts!


PCA Gallery – Call for Art!

Would you like to be the Artist of the Month? The PCA Gallery invites artists to submit work for consideration for solo and group exhibitions for September 2015 – June 2016. 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 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. The artist retains 80% of all sales.

To be considered, submit 8-10 images on CD or via email (.jpg files). For each image include the title, dimensions and media. In addition, include a brief artist biography including the artist email, address and phone number.  If your proposal is accepted, you will display your work for one month.

Provide a stamped, self-addressed envelope if you’d like your submission packet returned. CDs should be mailed to: PCA, PO Box 411, Westford, MA 01886. For email, send submissions to pca@westford.com.  The deadline for submission is Friday, March 6, 2015.  DEADLINE EXTENDED TO APRIL 10, 2015!

 

Sign up for the PCA mailing list. Our season generally runs from September through June.  Explore our website to learn more about our programs.  We publish a seasonal brochure in September — if you didn’t receive a copy and would like one,  contact us with your mailing address.  We also send out monthly email “upcoming events” notices so get on our mailing list for the latest additions to our schedule.
