The galleries of the Providence Art Club are always free and open to the public. Our three galleries principally exhibit recent work by our exhibiting artist members. Annually, we mount a National Open Juried Exhibition and we occasionally host special exhibitions in which non-members have the opportunity to display in our galleries. Exhibits are typically three to four weeks in length and feature public receptions and programs. The galleries regularly offer public programming as well.
