The Mystic Arts Center is issuing a call to artists to exhibit work in the Annual Juried Exhibition, Long and Lean, which runs from Apr. 16—May 22.

This exhibition is open to all artists and all media, with the exception of photography. Artists may submit up to two original artworks and each must fall within this year's dimensional theme: one direction measuring at least twice as long as the other direction.

Receiving for the exhibition will be held at the Mystic Arts Center on Sun., Apr. 11 and Mon., Apr. 12 from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.

All submitted works will be juried by Long Island artist and teacher Sharon Way-Howard, whose representational work in a variety of media has won numerous awards and acceptance in national exhibitions. Way-Howard is a Board member and Chairman of the Art Committee at Salmagundi Club in NYC and currently teaches at the Islip Art Museum.

Three monetary prizes will be awarded in the exhibition, with first prize receiving $350; second prize receiving $250; and third $150. Fees to submit artwork are $15 for members and $20 for non-members, with a discount applied to additional entries. For size limitations and exhibition requirements, please visit the Mystic Arts Center Web site or call (860) 536-7601 x204.

The show runs simultaneously with The Elected Artists Exhibition, and MAC Elected Artists are encouraged to submit their work during the same drop-off period. The Mystic Arts Center is located at 9 Water Street in downtown Mystic.
