Our Mission


PF/PCA is committed to the artist and the advancement of artistic excellence in visual arts – specifically film, digital video, photography, media, and fine and creative arts and crafts; the provision of equipment and facilities for artists; the conduct of instructional programs; and the stimulation of public understanding and awareness through exhibitions, demonstrations, and sales.


PF/PCA is dedicated to nurturing and encouraging artists, and the advancement of artistic excellence in all forms of visual art, from existing disciplines to those yet to be imagined. The artistic exchange, the sharing of thoughtful experiences with others, is at the core of our cultural philosophy. We believe that cultivating a fertile environment for artistic exploration and expression is essential to the community’s growth. It is crucial that art (making it and showing it) is accessible. The creation of art is inextricably linked to free thought; and should never be limited. Art inspires community, at every level, to advance cultural dialogue. PF/PCA provides opportunities for this sort of dialogue by focusing on both content, and space, creating environments that encourage an open exchange of images and ideas.
