2022 Members Exhibition


2022 PCB Members’ Exhibition: Searching for a New Normal

“Searching for a New Normal” is the topic of this year’s Philadelphia Center for the Book Members’ Exhibition at the Parkway Central Library, Free Library of Philadelphia, 1901 Vine Street, Philadelphia, PA 19103. The COVID-19 pandemic brought changes to all aspects of our lives - from how we interact with others, how we manage our studio practices, and how we understand the difference between our personal lives and the politics of the world around us. As we continue to navigate these changes, we are beginning to create our “new normal”. This year, we invite our members to submit up to three works that offer a reflection on what a “new normal” means to them.


This exhibtion is on view at the Art Department at the Free Library of Philadelphia’s Parkway Central branch from October 17, 2022 through December 8, 2022. For hours and other information visit
