The PCA Studio Gallery & Artist Lounge is great opportunity to see, purchase, and participate in visual arts displays. It is the place to go to find great gifts for your friends and yourself hand made by local Prescott artists.
Do you want to meet new and interesting friends, and be a part of one of the best art galleries in the Prescott area? We’ve got great art, a great building, and great volunteers! The Prescott Center for the Arts Gallery’s Visual Arts Committee volunteers possess a love and appreciation of art, a flexible attitude, and a winning personality, all of which increases the success of our exhibit space.
At the PCA Gallery, we highly value our dynamic volunteers and rely on them to perform a wide variety of engaging duties. The PCA Gallery is organized and operated by the Visual Art Committee members. Our dedicated and talented committee members and exhibit curators are all volunteers, responsible for selecting and installing these incredible exhibits. Each year, volunteers contribute multiple hours of time, energy, and expertise to help the PCA Gallery succeed in its role as a place of cultural enrichment and learning, and as an invaluable resource to the local community.
The purpose of the Visual Arts Committee is to promote appreciation of the visual arts by exposing the community to a variety of artistic exhibits and educational curriculum. This is accomplished through various forms of programming including exhibits, art classes, and workshops intended to illuminate new perspectives. Providing the community audience with pertinent visual art interests is a main goal of the VAC. Committee members curate exhibits, assist with hanging and taking down exhibits, greet guests on opening nights and Art Walks, serve refreshments, and other endeavors undertaken by the Visual Arts Committee.
The Visual Arts Committee is open to anyone interested in promoting the arts by their active participation. Committee members meet monthly, typically the first Tuesday at 3:00 p.m. in the gallery, to deliberate and vote on items relating to the operation and use of the gallery space, increase exposure as a strong element within the community, and provide a well-balanced visual arts program for the community.

From the time that Prescott Fine Arts Association was chartered in 1968, art has been a major part of its history. From the first art exhibit, which covered all the available wall space on the theatre's main floor, to the present, visual arts have been an integral part of PCA. Each season includes juried exhibits featuring the works of many local artists as well as some of the members of the Visual Arts Committee. The Scholarship Competition show, held each spring, encourages local area students to pursue their passion for the visual arts through creative endeavors.
The adaptability of the gallery, now hosted in the Studio Building, and the Artist Lounge beneath the PCA Cabaret has provided a location for the great variety of exhibits that cover everything from sculpture to watercolor, oils, pottery, photography, jewelry and the annual Holiday Gift Show and Sale. Each major exhibit is launched with a festive opening reception.
