- The East End Arts Gallery is pleased to announce the opening reception for the upcoming juried, all media art show, the theme of which is music, to be held at the East End Arts' Gallery on Friday, March 2, from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. For the Music show, guest juror Terrie Sultan
, Director of the Parrish Art Museum

. This free event is open to the public and refreshments will be served. The show will run from the opening through April 20, 2012. The East End Arts' Gallery is located at 133 East Main Street in Riverhead.
"What does music look like?" asks East End Arts' Gallery Director Jane Kirkwood
, who encourages artists to let the spirit and emotion music evokes flow into a visual work of art for this show. Original works in all media may be submitted, including painting, drawing, photography, mixed media, video, sculpture and poetry. Entries will be accepted on Thursday, February 23; Friday, February 24; and Saturday, February 25 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the East End Arts Gallery.
The "Best in Show" winner will be one of several artists who will participate in the East End Arts Gallery's Winners' Show in the Fall of 2013. First, Second, Third Place, and Honorable Mentions will also be awarded.
The Music show coincides with Long Island Winterfest Jazz on the Vine, celebrating five consecutive years of exceptional jazz performances over six weekends from February 11 to March 18, 2012.
The Music show is the first of six juried shows of 2012, under the umbrella theme of "Life as Art."
