Opportunities for Artists in the East End Arts Gallery
East End Arts juried shows provide artists in our membership, as well as in our community, the opportunity to expose their art to impressive and influential jurors, and exhibit their work in a highly regarded Gallery space.

It’s not just about replicating superficial features, it’s about capturing something deeper and therefore more authentic about an individual. It’s the gesture that predicts the character, an expression that reveals the thinker. When skill expresses insight, the artist rocks the portrait.
