Submission guidelines

Fall 2018 – Summer 2019 exhibitions

The Paragon Gallery is an educational and community space located in PCC’s Paragon Arts Resource Building along with PCC Cascade’s printmaking and future FabLab. We are committed to exhibiting work of high artistic quality and cultural relevance. Mindful of our role as a member of the Humboldt community we are especially interested in proposals that will engage and welcome community members into our space.

The Paragon Gallery is accepting proposals for installations/exhibitions to occur between Fall 20018 and Fall 2019. Although proposals may be reviewed on an ongoing basis, full consideration is given to submissions received by April, 30, 2018.

Submission proposals are evaluated based on:
  • Conceptual relevance to curricula and to the community surrounding Portland Community College Cascade Campus.
  • Artistic quality in technique and ideation.
  • Dynamic related programing/events.
  • Variety in overall exhibition schedule
