For more than 45 years the Peninsula Arts Association has hosted several art shows throughout the year. Our shows represent the work of participating PAA members exhibiting in a hugely diverse offering of art media and creativity.

The Spring and Fall shows include a People’s Choice award, plus runners up, chosen by show visitors who are invited to vote for their favorite pieces as they tour the exhibits. Winners are announced at the Artists’ Reception, held on the last day of the show.  The public (and all PAA artists) are invited to the awards ceremony, and free refreshments are provided.

The Spring, Summer, and Fall exhibits are held in the historic Long Beach Depot Building…with its natural light and high ceilings the venue provides our show with an extra touch of oomph! Our PAA office, just steps away, is the location for Inspired Creations…the perfect combo!  Address: 3rd North & Pacific, Long Beach, Washington, just north of the Dennis Company). Free admission and street parking is available.

PAA’s November Studio tour will be hosted at participating art studios, galleries, and shops on the Peninsula – PAA members, from Ilwaco up to Oysterville open their homes and businesses to visitors and are there to answer questions, explain techniques, and show off their work.  Maps are provided and there is no entrance charge at any of the venues.

More information about all PAA events will be posted as it becomes available.
