“Reflections” Exhibition and Sale at Pajaro Valley Arts in Watsonville California

Artist Bio and Artist Statement

Create an artist biography and an artist statement and print them (2 pages maximum). Deliver the printed page(s) with your artwork when you deliver it to the exhibit team.

“Reflections” . . . an unhurried consideration of something recalled to the mind.

The title and theme of the upcoming exhibition is “Reflections”. We encouraged artists to create up to 3 new narrative or story-telling works based on the theme of “Reflections”. All submitted art showcases metalwork in a variety of techniques and forms.

We are excited to announce that Pajaro Valley Arts will be hosting the exhibition in person and virtually. Visit the PVArts.org Virtual Tours page to see an example of a virtual show

As part of the exhibition, the Pajaro Valley Arts center gallery will also sell member’s art in their gift shop area. In our previous gallery exhibit and sale, many members had successful gallery gift shop sales.

I’ve signed up, what’s next?

When you know what pieces of art you are entering into the exhibition, fill out both online forms to submit your pieces. Yes, online forms are new this year! The online forms save you work of having to fill out, print, scan, and email because the forms automatically email the exhibition team your submissions. Note that both forms are required.

Links to the form pages are below. The two pages include instructions.

The forms were due 7/2/21 if you wished your images to be considered for inclusion on the postcard. The final due date for all forms from all participating artists was 7/12/21

Artwork for Sale PVA staff will assist customers to the gallery using the information we supply during the artwork submission process. The gallery requires the following ratio of pieces that are For Sale and Not For Sale (NFS): If you enter 1 piece, it must be for sale. If you enter 2 pieces, at least one of those pieces must be for sale. If you enter 3 pieces, at least 2 pieces must be for sale and the third can be NFS.

Membership in PVA is optional, but encouraged. See: pvarts.org to join
For items that sell in the “gift shop” area of the gallery, PVA will take 30% if you are a member of PVA or 45% if you are a PVA non-member. Work should be priced accordingly.

Exhibition Plus Sale: The gift area was very successful the last time MBMAG had an exhibition and sale at Pajaro Valley Arts. Show participants may put up to 5 pieces total in the gallery gift shop area. Work must be priced at $200.00 or less. As items are sold you may replace them.
