Three Onsite Galleries

Annually, the Paramount Center for the Arts (PCA) features 2 and 3-dimensional work created by Minnesota artists in each of our three onsite galleries.

Submit Your Work!

The Paramount invites artists or community members to submit ideas for the following types of exhibitions two times annually typically Jan. – Feb. and June – July. Feel free to contact our curator if you have questions about this process or would like to discuss and exhibition.

Thank you for considering the Paramount galleries. Currently we are not accepting applications for art exhibitions. Please check back in Spring 2025 for links to submit your idea(s) for a solo, group, and/or community exhibition for calendar year 2026.

We also encourage you to support 2024-2025 exhibition artists by attending a free reception and/or spending time in the galleries. Click here to view current art exhibitions at the Paramount.

About Our Galleries

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. GSG was intentionally designed as a flexible space to feature dynamic artwork that fosters community connections and in-person engagement activities.

Historic Lobby Gallery (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, North/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. Beginning in 2022, the Paramount periodically uses this gallery to share the organization’s historical story and feature its private collections.
