Call for Submissions: In the Commons

February 8–21, 2021

PPAC is proud to announce a call for submissions from current PPAC members for In the Commons, a juried exhibition at the Cherry Street Pier Gallery in April 2021.
In the Commons refers to the resources that belong to all of us, and so must be cared for by all of us. The commons can be our natural resources like air, oceans, parks, or our social creations like libraries, museums, public spaces, scientific research, artistic works and cultural heritage. PPAC welcomes a broad range of interpretations of this theme. In the Commons will consider the things we all have a stake in – to steward and protect, then hand to the next generation to do the same.
As a juried, off-site exhibition, In the Commons is a new opportunity for PPAC members. PPAC will also hold its annual open-call Members’ Exhibition in the gallery in summer 2021. Learn more about PPAC membership here. Submission is free. If selected, photographers will be asked to support the production cost of the exhibition prints.
