County Collection 

Formerly known as "Art in the Community"

An Exhibition of Prince Edward County Artists

 

By hanging County artists' work in local public places, County Collection, fulfills two purposes: to bring art into this community's life, every day; and to honour the artists who contribute so much to Prince Edward County's identity.

PECAC understands that art is for everyone in the community. By displaying our members' work in public places, we promote the appreciation of the arts, we enhance the environment of the venues and we provide an opportunity for artists to show their considerable talent.

Terry Culbert and Catherine Reilly Co-Chairs of County Collection

This program is designed to increase the exposure of our member artists' work and share this great bounty with our community by exhibiting works in public buildings such as Shire Hall,the Prince Edward County Memorial Hospital, the Edward Building, the Regent Theatre and the Prince Edward Family Health Team Clinic. We change the displays twice a year, May and November.

The only requirement for participation is current membership in PECAC. This is not a juried program. There is an "Agreement" between the artists and PECAC indicating that the artist assumes the liability for the work, and an "Agreement" with the venue indicating that the venue acknowledges maintenance of a reasonable and secure environment. All works in all mediums (limited space for 3 dimensional works) are welcome and we allocate those works based on the number and available space across all venues. Our committee is responsible for the hanging of the works, and creates accompanying cards for each work identifying the artist, title, sales price, and artist contact information.

 

If you are not yet a member of PECAC and wish to join please sign up today.

We look forward to hearing from you and we would be delighted to be able to share your work
with our community. We would also welcome volunteers who would like to be part of our
committee.
