The Art File is a curated online gallery on The Painting Center’s website. Art File artists have a public presence on our website as well as the opportunity to be considered for inclusion in our frequent member- and guest-curated exhibitions. Artists selected for an exhibition will be contacted by The Painting Center. These exhibitions may be funded partially by the gallery and by supplemental contributions requested from the participating artists.
