From the Vail-Leavitt Music Hall: We are seeking original artwork in any media to be exhibited as part of an 8-day variety arts festival at the historic Vail-Leavitt Music Hall in Riverhead, NY. The festival will also commemorate the 126th anniversary of the venue.

Submissions must contain a visual element that references an event, image, artifact or other cultural reference from the Vail's history. The image should be part of a larger composition and be integrated into the composition in such a way that it is somewhat "hidden" but invites discovery and engagement from the viewer. Historic subject matter can be obtained from the history page of our website: http://thevail.org/vail-leavitt-history/. Artists are encouraged to be creative in interpreting the Vail's history in their work, but the hidden picture should be something that the viewer can ultimately find through thoughtful examination!

Exhibition dates will be during the Oct 12-15 and Oct 19-22 (Thurs-Sun) period (weekday evenings and weekend afternoons/evenings). Participating artists will be invited to attend an opening on one of the festival days to interact with visitors who will attempt to match the historical reference to its composition as well as to the artist who created it. The names and descriptions of each historic element represented in the artworks will be provided in random arrangement on a tabletop display in the exhibition area. During the discovery session, the artists may provide "clues" to visitors, but may not state explicitly what their hidden picture is.

How to Participate: Artists should email a photograph or scanned image that clearly shows the piece intended for exhibit along with their name, age (if under 18), contact info (phone and email), title, if any, a brief description of the media, size and historic element referenced in the piece. Works to be exhibited will be selected by jury. Artists have the option to sell their work during the festival. Deadline for submissions is: Friday September 29. Artists will be notified of works selected for the exhibit; and participants will be asked to deliver their work to the venue by Friday October 6 (times to be arranged).

Artists of all ages and experience are encouraged to apply. We would appreciate your help in posting this announcement for your artist members, students and other interested individuals. Questions should be directed to this email address or tel: 631-503-0153. Thanks so much for your help!
