EXHIBITIONS

Since its founding in 1915, the PAA has presented the work of artists and designers working in a wide variety of media, from ceramics and jewelry to textiles and sculpture. Each year we present up to twelve new exhibitions featuring the work of emerging and established artists. Rather than understanding “craft” as a class of objects, the PAA encourages visitors to consider “craft” as a verb. This broader definition means that our exhibitions encompass a range of topics and types of work, from useful and decorative objects to sculpture and installations. Our diverse program of exhibitions, inspired by our setting in a masterfully crafted domestic space, can thus be communicated to visitors in engaging and unexpected ways.

Christina P. Day: Fifth Wall

The phrase fifth wall references a marketing campaign created by the interiors industry to encourage the addition of wallpaper to the ceiling in a home.  It is the concealment of an overhead floor, a seal of interior facing walls- a fifth wall that creates a truly closed space.  For Christina P. Day, this fifth wall represents the physical divide between real and imagined. SEE MORE
