Pacific Grove, CA. (April 2021) ATTENTION ALL ARTISTS! SUBMIT YOUR MINIATURE ART WORKS, PLEASE! Will you help support the nonprofit Pacific Grove Art Center (PGAC) by donating a beautiful miniature work of art to the 2021 Tiny Treasures show? They will begin accepting donations on April 14 through June 24, 2021. The office is located at 568 Lighthouse, P.G. and is staffed to receive donations Wednesday through Saturday from 12-5pm and Sunday from 12-4pm (except for Sunday, May 2).
They are limiting the number of donated pieces to a maximum of 3 pieces. Donated art must be original work (no reproductions) and any medium is accepted. Each piece must be no larger than 8”x 10” inches, including frame, and not exceed 7 inches in depth. Each piece must be ready to hang on the wall, with hooks or wires already attached.

Please donate your art -- and then join PGAC for this much anticipated Opening Reception on Friday, July 2, 2021 from 7-9 pm (tentative).

Since 1969, Pacific Grove Art Center has been a community-based nonprofit seeking to enhance art appreciation and encourage the creation of art. With the desire to have art available to everyone, PGAC has held low-cost classes, free exhibits, and offered reduced rent for artist’s studios for over 50 years. Both emerging and established artists are professionally shown in their historic galleries, and large group shows can provide the first step into the art world for many.
