(RIVERHEAD, NY, January 15, 2016) –– The East End Arts Gallery is pleased to announce their annual non-juried, all media Members’ Show, this year themed Out of your Mind. The opening reception will be held Friday, January 29, from 5:00 PM to 7:00 PM. East End Arts members have been invited to submit one work of art for guaranteed inclusion in this show. The Annual Members’ Show provides the opportunity for all member artists to show their work to the public. The show will run from the opening through March 4, 2016. The reception is a free public event; refreshments will be served. There will be an opportunity for the public to cast a vote and select their favorite artwork for the People's Choice Award. The East End Arts Gallery is located at 133 East Main Street in Riverhead, NY and open hours are Tuesdays through Saturdays, 10:00 AM to 4:00 PM.
East End Arts Gallery Director Jane Kirkwood encourages artists: "When inspiration comes from your imagination, your dreams, your emotions, or just from fun playing with form, the results can be quite enchanting. A made up landscape or person (figurative or abstract) is guaranteed to be unique." For more information about this exhibition, visit http://www.eastendarts.org/gallery/2016-members-mind.html.
