The Photographic Arts Society of Northwestern Pennsylvania (PASNWPA) promotes and supports photography as art in northwestern Pennsylvania.
We showcase the photographic work of our accomplished and award-winning contemporary photographers, define Photographic Fine Art by educating the community through gallery shows and programs, and endeavor to teach those who aspire to advance their photography as Fine Art.
While it is difficult to define art, especially fine art since it is up to the viewer and purchaser of such art, we strive to offer the general public and art buyers access to photographers whose work has either appeared in magazines, books, galleries, juried shows and competitions, or otherwise whose photography meets the high aesthetic and technical qualities as defined by this organization.
We were founded in June 2011.
