Thank You and Farewell!
PCPA closes on February 9, 2018

We enjoyed the experience of presenting excellence in contemporary fine art photography in Providence for the last 14 months. And now, the Providence Center for Photographic Arts board of directors are moving onward. Our exhibits and programming will end with the close of our final exhibit, Photography by Founding Members of PCPA & Invited Artists, on February 9, 2018.

It was a pleasure to meet so many of you in person and so many more virtually online. We will all miss the communal joy of opening receptions, the camaraderie of our events and salons, and most of all seeing the amazing and inspirational artwork that came through our doors.

Many thanks to all of you who spent their time with us at PCPA — our members, our exhibitors, our jurors, and the thousands visitors to the gallery.

Cheers, good wishes, and farewell!

Exhibit: Photography by Founding Members of PCPA & Invited Artists

Exhibit: January 18 – February 10, 2018
Opening Reception: January 18 from 5:00 to 8:00pm

A new year is a time to reflect on the past, welcome in fresh ideas, and to set goals and make changes to charter a course for the months ahead. 2018 has brought change to the Providence Center for Photographic Arts. Our January exhibit, Founders Invitational, not only ushers in the new with an event that showcases exciting work by photo-based media artists new to our gallery presented alongside recent work from our founding members, it also marks a structural change in our organization.

Please join us at the opening reception on January 18 as we celebrate photography in Providence!
