The East End Arts Gallery is now accepting artist entries for their upcoming fifth annual national juried art competition and exhibit: “The Gallerist, The Artist, The Critic, & The Kid.” This year’s unique theme will result in four shows: four different jurors choose four different exhibits from the same pool of entries. Artists are invited to enter their most excellent artwork on any subject. All entries will be juried four separate times by four different jurors from the same pool of entries, and will result in four separate exhibitions. The show chosen by gallery owner Peter Marcelle will be exhibited from August 5 through September 21 at the East End Arts Gallery, located at 133 E. Main Street in Riverhead. The other three shows will be viewable on individual monitors within the Gallery.

Submissions are due on April 5.

In addition to Mr. Marcelle, other guest jurists include artist Eric Ernst, art critic Joyce Beckenstein, and a 12 year old that will be chosen by lottery and will be known in the critics circe as “The Kid.”
