About the Biennial
The 2013 Portland Museum of Art Biennial, on view from September 26, 2013 through January 5, 2014, is the eighth in an ongoing series of juried exhibitions showcasing new or recent work by living artists. Through a generous bequest by beloved Maine artist William Thon and his wife, Helen, the Biennial began in 1998 and has become a centerpiece of the PMA's exhibition calendar for artists, audiences, and arts professionals in the state of Maine and beyond.

Beginning October 1, 2012 and continuing through December 15, 2012, the PMA will accept entries from artists whose biography or professional practice has a meaningful connection to the state of Maine. Artists need not be in residence to apply. Early applications will not be considered. Work in any medium will be considered, with the exception of materials that the PMA deems hazardous.

The juror for the Biennial will be Jessica May, Curator of Contemporary and Modern Art, Portland Museum of Art.

Application Process
There are two ways to apply: you may apply via the online submission service linked below, or send the PMA an application by mail. Emailed submissions will not be accepted. You may submit images, videos, or sound clips.

The PMA will recognize one outstanding Biennial artist with a Juror's Award of $4,000.
