The Photographic Arts Society of Northwestern Pennsylvania (PASNWPA) promotes and supports fine art photography.
MISSION: We showcase the photographic work of members who are accomplished and award-winning contemporary photographers; define Photographic Fine Art through our gallery shows; and offer public training seminars by professional photographers.
While it is difficult to define what constitutes art, especially “fine art,” it is ultimately up to the viewer and purchaser of such art. To that end we strive to offer art buyers access to the highest quality photography that meets the aesthetic and technical qualities defined by our organization.
