2022 Open Juried Exhibition: 50 Reasons Why


Your Take on the East End


Open Juried Exhibition for Artists of All Mediums


This open juried exhibition provides artists the opportunity to showcase works that depict their feelings about the East End of Long Island.

To celebrate EEA's 50th year, the jurors of the 2022 East End Arts Open Juried Exhibition will select fifty pieces that they feel best convey the artists' intentions and show originality of visions.

This exhibition welcomes all mediums and sizes. In addition to fine art, sculpture, and photography, we encourage digital, literary, audible, musical, video, film, fashion, et al. Works must be the artist's original design and concept.

This is a national open call, however the subject matter must connect to the East End of Long Island.

Artists can enter up to 3 submissions of work that meets the theme and have not been previously shown at EEA. Only digital submissions through the designated linked platform will be considered. Submissions that are missing information will be rejected. There is no refund for the rejection of a submission for any reason. See prospectus or application for a full list of Terms & Conditions.

Application opens: Tuesday, July 12
Applications close: Friday, September 30

Selection announcement: Friday, October 21
Opening reception: Saturday, November 12

Exhibition held at two locations: 
EEA Main Gallery - 133 E. Main Street, Riverhead
