Any member of PAC has the opportunity to display work in the gallery. Novice artists to professional artists are all welcome with artwork being rotated quarterly. The gallery is open weekdays from 10am to 4pm and for special events. ​RIVERSIDE PARTNERSHIP ​In April of 2013, Piqua Arts Council and Riverside of Miami County teamed up for a permanent display in the PAC Members’ Gallery. Riverside of Miami County has 20 plus works of art from their consumers on display in the gallery and will rotate the pieces throughout the year.
