Exhibition Awards

Throughout each year, Providence Art Club hosts a number of juried exhibitions that are open calls, and private member shows. With each juried show that passes through our historical walls, there are always several pieces of artwork that stand out among the rest. These are the kinds of works that radiate excellence and emotion, that move their viewer, or make them ponder.

Providence Art Club would like to memorialize these award winners, so that they may reference their awards for their work for years to come, in addition to their many other accomplishments. Check this page frequently for updates on the Club's Juried Exhibitions, their winners, and more.
