• Call for artists: Work is sought for East End Arts’ nonjuried, all media annual Members Show, which will be on view Jan. 24 to March 7 at the Riverhead gallery. The show’s theme is “The Muse.” Gallery director Jane Kirkwood said the muse is “the spirit that feels present when you create effortlessly and that seems to be missing when you are creatively ‘stuck.’ ” The umbrella theme for all 2014 exhibits is “The Creative Process.” All artists must be or become members of East End Arts. Participation is guaranteed to all entrants. Each may submit one work, with a maximum size of 14 inches wide and 65 inches high. For a prospectus, click here.
