This is an OPEN call to all PRC members, current and new, to submit and show up to 5 of their own original images - per person - on the walls of the PRC. Everything will be for sale for $50 and proceeds will be split 50/50 (half will go to the artist, and half to support the programming at the PRC). The display will grow over the course of the exhibition à la YOUR WORK HERE.  See all of the details and guidelines, including a required form, and a template. We will accept prints starting February 2, via snail mail, or physical drop off during our open hours. Prints must be on paper exactly 5 inches square but the image can be any shape (we wish to have work in a consistent physical format and the PRC, of course, is also known for its square logo).

(to date):
Nancy Ahmadifar, John Bunzick, Sally Chapman, Byron Clemence, Colleen Fitzgerald, Jaine Hayward, tSOfi Inbar, Andrew Janjigian, Lee Kilpatrick, Melissa Rivard, Walter Silver, Rebbeca Skinner, Dennis Stein... YOUR NAME HERE

A FEW LOGISTICS: We will accept prints starting in early January, via drop off Thursdays, Fridays, & Saturdays during regular PRC hours, or UPS mail, until the end of the show on Feb. 25, 2017. Prints must be one 5 x 5 inch paper, but image can be any size on the paper. Please read over and follow the below guidlines to the right carefully. We are hoping to share all images on our Instagram (@prcboston) + on Twitter using the hashtag, #FiveXFivePRC.
