The PAA hosts four annual juried exhibitions in the Paseo Art Space. These exhibits provide visual artists of all mediums, ages and stages an opportunity to exhibit to sell their work, win cash awards and engage with other artists in the community. We bring in outside artists to curate each exhibit. Artists from all over Oklahoma and surrounding states submit, and for many, a PAA juried show has been their first experience exhibiting work.
Sell Your Work
The gallery is open to the public Tues-Sat 12-5pm and operated by PAA staff. All work must be for sale and the PAA retains a 30% commission (20% for the SmallArt Show).
Win Cash Awards
Best of Show - $150
Merit Awards - $75 each
Engage with Other Artists
An opening reception is held during First Friday, with awards typically announced at 7pm by the juror. A casual evening during the monthly gallery walk, receptions are a great way to connect with the dozens of other artists in the show.
Juror Critique & Feedback
Typically on a Saturday afternoon during the month of the exhibit, artists who submitted work to a show, whether selected or not, as well as PAA members are invited to attend a critique and feedback session with the juror in the gallery.
Each juror has a unique perspective on the work and process by which they curate from submissions. Many times, when artists submit work or apply to a program but aren’t selected, they may never receive any feedback about where they could improve. We hope to provide artists with an opportunity to learn how they can improve their work and the quality of their applications, as well as gain a better understanding of the jurying process by hearing directly from the jurors themselves.
