Paisley Art Institute.

25 February 2019


Normally around this time of year the Paisley Art Institute are placing adverts for a 'call for entry' to the PAI annual Exhibition. However, following the closure of the Paisley Museum, the PAI Management Committee have been exploring alternative venues in the Renfrewshire area which would be suitable to accommodate our 131st Annual Exhibition.  We wanted to let you know that the annual exhibition won’t happen in May this year, so rest assured that you haven’t missed any deadlines to submit work.  

As you can appreciate, the logistics which need to be in place for us to host an exhibition of the scale of PAI has come with its own set of challenges, but we hope you will be encouraged to hear that the Management Committee is presently pursuing options for an alternative venue in Paisley and hope to be in a position to share more information with you on exhibition venue and dates in the coming month.

We wanted to update our members at this stage and to inform you that we will circulate information as soon possible.
