Call to Artists - 2022 Fall Festival on the East Haven Green

The East Haven Arts Commission offers an open call to artists from East Haven and the surrounding communities for its inaugural exhibition during the 2022 Fall Festival on the East Haven Green.

We are asking the community to share their artwork on any theme and in any media. Our exhibition is meant to be a reflection of the diverse perspectives and approaches to art making in our community and the many talented people who live here. There is a wide world of aesthetic and artistic perspectives in our area and we want to highlight the artists who live among us and the many things that make their work unique. Artwork on a broad array of themes and in different media will be accepted.

Artists are encouraged to submit up to 5 pieces for consideration. The selected artwork will be exhibited as part of the Fall Festival on the East Haven Green on Saturday, September 10th. Priority will be given to current and past residents of East Haven.

The submission deadline is August 25th. Submissions must be no larger than 24”x36” and be delivered ready to hang. Any 3-dimensional works must be self-supported and be easy to transport in the event of inclement weather.

Submissions can be made here:
