If attending art receptions, freely strolling through gallery exhibitions/shows, connecting to locally sponsored art crawls, and engaging in art studio tours sounds fun – The Gallery Group is for you!
The Paramount Center for the Arts (PCA) proudly collaborates with visual artists to showcase new and relevant creative work in each of our three onsite galleries. We are currently scheduling for the 2024 calendar year in our exhibition spaces, please let us know if you are interested in discussing opportunities by completing the form below!
Gallery Saint Germain – GSG (Main Floor, Granite Entrance):
This newly renovated space features almost floor to ceiling windows; visibly connecting the artist’s work to customers shopping in downtown Saint Cloud and onsite in our retail store. The GSG was intentionally designed as a flexible space to feature dynamic artwork that fosters community connections and in-person engagement activities.
Historic Lobby (Main Floor, Marquee Entrance):
The gallery is situated within the historically renovated section of the building. Located between our marquee and ramp entrances, it is the largest of PCA’s three galleries. It offers increased visibility among theatre patrons, mingling onsite during performances or community events; and is best suited to showcase 2D work.
Gallery C (Lower Level, Parking Ramp Entrance):
This fully accessible gallery also hosts small private and public events and workshops. Positioned near the PCA’s art classrooms, it is best suited to feature the creative body of work from teachers, students, and regional artists interested in cross-pollinating work by incorporating a variety of mediums, audiences, or engagement opportunities.
Collaborating with the Paramount Center for the Arts
PCA staff works closely with approved visual artists to create a meaningful exhibition. We invest time and resources to professionally showcase artwork through online platforms and in various print materials. Artists are also invited to host an in-person or virtual reception, provide onsite demonstrations or community presentations that are COVID compliant (Link).
The PCA would like to invite artists or community members to submit ideas for the following types of exhibitions:
- Solo artists interested in being featured in one of our gallery spaces (Link).
- Group collaborations with multiple artists that feature specially curated exhibits around unique and/or relevant content (Link).
- Creative community partnership with non-arts organizations interested in cross pollinating ideas (Link).
We are happy to provide printed forms upon request.
Please note that we are currently reviewing exhibition submissions for calendar year 2024. Applications are reviewed on an ongoing basis each month. Artists will be contacted within one month after receiving their application.
Coming Soon – Call for Art!
Annually, the PCA will announce a special “Artist Call” to encourage engagement around a special themed exhibition. Check back at a future date for additional information.
