Off The Cost PDX
March 31, 2020
In a time where online galleries are booming, growing and launching based on the need for self isolation and therefore adjusted forms of art viewing, robust resources like Off The Cost PDX become all the more powerful. OTC PDX is an online platform that was founded and is run by PNCA Visual Studies ‘19 Alumni Jen Bacon and Brittany Vega not long after they wrapped up their thesis projects and shifted to their post-graduate lives. Its purpose has always been to share free creative opportunities with artists and as it has grown they've begun to create online exhibition opportunities of their own through OTC PDX.

We hope you all are well and carving a new pathway as best as you can through this unpredictable moment we are all in. We’d like to stay connected and continue our mission: to share and broaden the view of creative opportunities. One thing is certain, creativity will continue.
Off The Cost is forming a new opportunity for artists of many mediums to exhibit in an online exhibition. Artists from far and wide may submit up to three  pieces for consideration. The theme is open to interpretation, 2D & 3D artworks will be accepted.
