A Call for Artists - PSMC Art Wall

Updated: Apr 22, 2020

It's time for another installation of the

Pagosa Springs Medical Center’s Art Wall! 

The PS Arts Council is pleased to invite all local and regional artists to submit their work for the next installation of Pagosa Springs Medical Center's (PSMC) rotating art wall.  Artists' works will hang on the art wall in the new addition, where visitors and patients can view and purchase pieces.  PSMC provides a locking hanging system and insurance. PSAC supervises all installations.  Artists are required to sign an agreement holding PSAC and PSMCF harmless. Art submissions need not be limited to any one theme or style.  We are happy to accept both contemporary works as well as traditional pieces. Buyers will contact the artist directly to purchase art. Please note that all pieces, sold and unsold, must remain on the art wall until the next installation on April 15, 2020. While PSAC is not charging a submission fee, artists are asked to consider donating 20% of their PSMCF art wall sales proceeds to Pagosa Springs Arts Council.


  • Hang location:  Artist Wall in new addition of the Pagosa Springs Medical Center.

  • All styles accepted, as long as they meet the submission criteria.

  • All mediums, including photography, are acceptable. 

  • Submissions of fabric, tapestry, or works that are not painted or photographed, must be encased in glass or acrylic to meet cleaning and health requirements.

  • Submissions must not include photographs or paintings of culturally offensive subject matter, weapons, and excessive amounts of red, which may be deemed offensive or not in keeping with a healing environment.  In a medical center, people often are stressed and dealing with trauma. Red can remind a person of blood.

  • A maximum of three (3) pieces may be submitted.

  • A maximum of two (2) paintings per artist will be selected for the installation.

  • If presenting two pieces of work, each piece may not exceed 30” X 24”.

  • Artists may submit works they wish to display only.
