Being Present - PCNW’s 26th Juried Exhibition

OPEN THEME! Send us your best work for a chance to exhibit in the PCNW gallery!

This year's esteemed juror is Gail Gibson, art dealer and owner of G. Gibson Projects in Seattle, Washington. 

Professional, mid-career, and emerging lens-based artists from all communities are encouraged to submit work on any theme; all levels of experience and backgrounds are welcome and considered. 

Those that are selected will have their work exhibited in the PCNW gallery from June 27 - August 11, 2024. (Artists will be responsible for shipping of their framed work to/from the gallery.)

Selected work will also be featured at the Union Project, an outdoor slideshow venue that PCNW curates. Images will be projected on an approximately 50 x 60 foot exhibition wall on the side of a building in Capitol Hill (just a few blocks away from PCNW) nightly from sundown until 11pm for the duration of the gallery exhibition.

EXTENDED!! SUBMISSION DEADLINE: Sunday, May 12th at 10:59pm (Pacific Daylight Time)


Gail Gibson has worked in the gallery industry for more than 35 years, and her degrees in Art History, Painting, and Photography led her to the profession. From 1987-1991 Gail was the director of the Weston Gallery in CA, and then opened G. Gibson Gallery in Seattle in August, 1991. She is also a long time member of AIPAD. In 2019 the brick and mortar G. Gibson Gallery morphed into G. Gibson Projects, an online and ‘by appt.’ space. G. Gibson Projects curates and showcases physical and online exhibits through partnerships with local arts organizations and alternative spaces.

Your entry fee helps to support our non-profit educational institution dedicated to photography. Money raised through this call will go towards supporting PCNW's scholarship fund, 20-25 annual free public programs, and continued free public gallery access to all.  

In our ongoing commitment to supporting artists, PCNW will give 90% to artists for all works sold during this juried exhibition (this a 40% increase from our normal 50/50 gallery commission policy).
