Reciprocal Clubs

Providence Art Club has reciprocal agreements with several private clubs statewide, nationwide and internationally to take care of our beloved members during their (or our) time away. Many Club members are familiar with the annual Club shutdown we do in the summer for two weeks. During this time, the Providence Art Club and its galleries are not accessible to members (aside from members who lease a studio with us). But our members should have no fear, as we've partnered with a long list of Clubs to spend your time at when one of us is away! While we do have many year-round agreements with a variety of private clubs worldwide, there are some that are only accessible during the 2-week shut down period. Please review the slides below for more information on where you can go with our reciprocity agreements, and when. Clubs marked with asterisks (**) are only open to PAC Members during the summer closure.

Reciprocity agreements are active with the following Clubs — letters of introduction may be obtained from our administrative office by calling Julia Johnstone at (401) 331-1114 ext. 16 or by e-mailing her at
