East End Arts’ 7th Annual National Juried Art Competition & Exhibit

Theme: INK

Entry Deadline: April 9, 2018

Show Dates: August 3 – September 19, 2018

The East End Arts Gallery is now accepting artist entries for their upcoming seventh annual national juried art competition and exhibit: INK. Guest juror for this competition is Sara De Luca, the owner and director of ILLE ARTS gallery in Amagansett, NY. Entries selected by the juror will be included in the INK exhibition, scheduled to run from August 3 through September 19, 2018 at the East End Arts Gallery, located at 133 East Main Street in Riverhead.

East End Arts Gallery Director Jane Kirkwood clarifies: This competition is open to all ‘ink’ media including ballpoint, fountain pen, printmaking, Sharpie, tattoo ink (which may be submitted as photography of Tattoo artwork) alcohol ink, India ink—any and every ink media with the exception of desktop printer ink. (Two-dimensional submissions only.) Maximum height and maximum width 30” including the frame.

The East End Arts Gallery is now accepting entries online, which must be submitted by April 9, 2018 or by the late entry deadline of April 16, 2018 for an additional fee. Artists may enter a minimum of three and a maximum of five works for the same entry fee of $50. Due to shipping restrictions, artists submitting work must be from the contiguous United States (the lower 48 states and the District of Columbia). Artists will be notified of the juror’s decisions of inclusion in the show on or before June 1, 2018. If accepted, artists must ship the selected artwork per East End Arts’ outlined shipping instructions, available online; failure to do so will prevent inclusion in the show.
